Washingtonian Magazine on Gene Weingarten at Mayborn Conference 2011 “”

Washingtonian Magazine – How Do You Explain Gene Weingarten?

Why risk besmirching your own reputation? My theory is that this is consistent with his tendency toward self-flagellation. He reveals his faults in his columns. He writes stories about people whose mistakes and quirks mirror his own. So it makes sense that when he gives a speech in front of admiring journalists, he admits to bending the rules. It seems like a meaningful trend to me, perhaps even a profound insight.
