I haven’t had a chance to take note of the New York Sun’s demise. Friend of Media Nation Seth Gitell, who wrote a political column for the Sun, weighs in usefully and at some length.
I’ve said this before, but the most fun I had in journalism was covering the two national conventions with Seth in 2000, when we were both working for the Boston Phoenix.
Seth is a huge talent. Though it’s a shame he’s lost an important outlet, he’ll land on his feet.
