For the latest installment of The Atlantic Wire's media diet series--in which journalists and media figures discuss what they read and how they consume the news--New York Times columnist David Brooks tells John Hudson that he prioritizes newspapers (Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal), then long magazine pieces, then blogs.
Take heed: Brooks reads The Atlantic Wire. And Real Clear Politics. And the Weekly Standard, The New Republic, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, the New York Review of Books, The Claremont Review, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, National Affairs, and Commentary. When it comes to blogs, Brooks (being the fair-minded conservative that he is) tries to balance one liberal blog with one conservative blog.
For Brooks's full explanation, see John Hudson's post at The Atlantic Wire.
