Me, on not hating your audience

Continuing our series of videos from the Nieman Foundation’s 70th-convocation discussion on the future of journalism, here’s…me. More specifically, ten minutes of me talking about:

— How journalists’ attitudes toward their audience needs to change;
— Why our pride at being hated by so many of our readers might be misplaced;
— A Carrot Top reference no one seemed to get;
— Comparing a 1995 interview with Arthur Sulzberger to a blog post by Josh Marshall.
