Why are media people, including owners, allowed to have (and acknowledge) non-public conversations? Whose interests are served by that practice?
SULZBERGER: If I could interject, we had a good conversation there, you and I, and it was off the record, but there was nothing secret, just wanted to make sure. The idea of looking forward was one of the themes that you were saying. That we need to now get past the election, right?
I mean what bullshit! If there was nothing secret, why was it off the record?
