And that’s important to me because I care about the quality of the work that I do.”

One of the biggest differences for me and my digital colleagues is that the NewsGuild has our back, understands the need for a balance between work and life, and makes sure we’re properly compensated for the time that we work. Being represented by the Guild has made a huge difference for us."

The man behind Snopes. Michelle Dean profiles Snopes publisher David Mikkelson in Wired. “He’s got the world­view of Eeyore, had Eeyore been obsessed with cataloging the precise history, variety, and growing seasons of thistles in the Hundred Acre Wood.” The tenor of the site changed after 9/11, when Snopes went from debunking weird rumors (like...
