Kinsley began his career as editor of the The New Republic in the late 1970s and wrote that magazine's famous TRB column for most of the 1980s and 1990s. That column was also reprinted in a variety of newspaper op-ed pages, including the Washington Post's, and made Kinsley's reputation as a leading and influential political commentator. Kinsley also served as editor at Harper's (for a year and a half in the early 1980s), mangaging editor of Washington Monthly (in the mid-seventies, while still in school), and American Editor of the The Economist (a short-term, honorary position, roughly akin to a sabbatical for an academic). And in the early 1990s he surprised many Washington media insiders (and scandalized others) by agreeing to take the job as co-host of CNN's Crossfire. In 1999 he was named "Editor of the Year" by the Columbia Journalism Review. Cover from the August 30th, 2004 issue. ...

Welcome to Michael Kinsley's Dream (1097 words)
Michael Kinsley, the editor of Slate Magazine, thought it necessary to outline the reasons why we shouldn't be concerned by Microsoft Corp.'s ownership of Slate.
As Michael Kinsley puts it, the potential conflicts of interest are "far greater for a publication that is part of a traditional media company than for one owned by a software company." Since most of the people at which Mr.
Kinsley is aiming this argument are much more concerned with the very existence of conflicts of interest than with the actual number of conflicts of interest in these situations, it would appear this part of his argument is a complete waste of Slate's online web space.
