This is from an interview about how The Atlantic wants to diversify its writers & editors - but Goldberg doesn't seem to know that people other than white men write longform?
I think he thinks he's saying something good - like, that more women and people of color have to be tapped to write cover stories. Which is true! But this is not exclusively an "experience versus potential" issue - it's a "you don't read enough people who aren't white men" issue
I think he's taking this piece of advice he got from his wife and applying it a little too broadly. [Insert Wife Guy joke here]
Anyway, I'll never forget how much pressure - and how long - it took for Goldberg to fire Kevin Williamson medium.com/@jessicavalent…
Just gonna re-up this sentence from that piece 🙃

"How can you say that you want a workplace that values women when you hire someone who wants 25% of those women dead?"
