Lots to catch up with this Labor Day:

–A very thoughtful piece by Sasha Issenberg from the Sunday Timesabout a possible skills gap between political reporters and political operatives.

Nice slideshow goes with it, including this photo from the 1960 Kennedy campaign:

I wonder what Nate Silver thinks of all this?

 

 

 

 

 

–A new David Carr column about Reddit. (which may be the ugliest site on the Web.)

 

–A look at the top lawyer at Twitter, who makes the day-to-day calls on freedom of speech.

 

–A fascinating peek at how the New Orleans Times-Picayune is tip-toeing across the scary rope bridge to the future. Here’s a prior post.
