What You Should Be Reading…Now

Sorry for the absence, but I’m back to jump start this little feature that’s gone dormant since I started posting at True/Slant.

Here’s the picks for this week:

  • John H. Richardson’s eye-opening, two part series on the “birther” movement over at Esquire’s website
  • David L. Ulin’s meditation on the pleasures of reading in the Los Angels Times
  • John Seabrook’s investigation into the practices of Ticketmaster in The New Yorker (behind the paywall)
  • Ta-Nehisi Coates on the perils of opinion writing at his Atlantic blog
  • This deeply disturbing piece from Michael Joseph Gross in GQ about online sexual extortion in a small Wisconsin town
  • This post from the Columbia Journalism Review on what was right (and wrong) about Matt Taibbi’s take down of Goldman Sachs.
