Are Business Journalists Dorks?

Print comment Post Comments
In an essay titled "Business Journalism’s Image Problem", Chrystia Freeland of Reuters writes that, as the "high school nerds of the newsroom," business journalists are quietly thrilled at the runaway success of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy, which co-stars glamorous scribe Mikael Blomkvist.

The average business reporter is "lacking the dangerous glamour of the war correspondents, the proximity to fame of the sports and entertainment writers, and the alpha-dog swagger of the political press corps. Blomkvist offers the business press hipness by association," says Freeland. "If James Bond were reincarnated as a crusading Swedish feminist, he would be Mikael Blomkvist."

However, here at Minyanville World Headquarters, we are boldly shattering the stereotype of dull math dorks poring over 10-Qs and debating capital requirements for banks.
