David Faber of the real work in journalism

GalleyCat has a short interview with CNBC’s David Faber, one of the handful of television reporters who did a good job on the financial meltdown. He has a new book out, “And Then The Roof Caved In” (Kindle edition), about the financial crisis. He talks about starting out doing journalism on a typewriter, which I appreciate, and has this to say about doing the footwork before reporting: “I think there is a tremendous pressure to be fast. Better to not be first and be right, than to be first and wrong.”
