Over on Facebook, a friend asked in response to the previous post: "where's your list [of interesting opinion writers]?"
Some of the essential ones I mention here often:
- Charles Blow at the NYT;
- Josh Marshall at TPM when he's wearing his historian hat;
- Ed Kilgore on U.S. politics, especially the view from the U.S. South and religiosity ;
- Paul Waldman at The Week; also at the Washington Post but they paywall.
- David Niewert, spyhopping the Right;
- J.J. Goldberg at the Jewish Daily Forward;
- Echidne of the Snakes because 51 percent of us are women;
- Jamelle Bouie on politics and especially on correcting the history;
- Felix Salmon who used to report on business and finance for Reuters and now writes on what interests him at Fusion;
- the Rev. Canon Giles Fraser at the Guardian;
- David Roberts, on climate, formerly of Grist, now on Vox;
- Sarah Posner, on politics and religion.
I could go on with about 15 more, but I'm camped in an airport, preparing to board ... Enough for now. Who do readers look to for informative opinion?
UPDATE: In honor of Giving Tuesday, may I suggest working on the paucity of women's voices by supporting Echoing Ida? I did.
