(T)he truth about impact journalism is that it requires that you ignore the nuance and the contradictory nature of truth. You have to pick a side and hammer against an obvious outrage and get out clean. – David Simon at California Magazine

    Hey, thanks for the link. Your readers may also appeciate the interview we did with another MacArthur grant-winner, filmmaker Errol Morris. Includes the following response:

    “That’s a really good question … although I always have this sense that when people say ‘that’s a really good question,’ they mean to say ‘fuck you.'”

    Cool magazine. Keep up the good work.
