Reporting as nourishment

One of the reasons I so admire New Yorker Editor David Remnick:

And I would never keep writing — to the degree that I do do it, which is not that much — if I thought it would hurt the magazine. Some people do this — editing — and play the piano. Or they have a rich social life. Or they study Greek. Reporting is what I do. It gets me out in the world. I can’t experience the world entirely through reading the newspaper in the morning.
