Eric Black, March 6, 2008

Eric Black was a journalist for the Star Tribune for three decades and founder of its blog, the Big Question, before taking a buyout in June of 2007 and starting his own blog called Eric Black Ink. Black Ink recently became part of the new online startup MinnPost.com. Liberated from the constraints of newspaper norms, he hopes to find a middle ground between traditional and web-based journalism where the author’s opinions are an integral part of the presentation of uncensored news. He presented a talk at the IAS in March of 2008, “One ink-stained wretch’s quest for the sweet spot — between the old journalism and the new — where civil, substantive discourse can occur, even across the ideological divide.”

The interview can be downloaded as a video podcast (142.9 MB) or as an audio file (.mp3 – 55.3 MB).
