How to be a better reader and editor of the news
The Washington Post’s editorial page editor, Kevin Roose, has been one of the most important voices in the editorializing that has propelled the newspaper to extraordinary heights.
This week, he is stepping down.
He will leave the paper to start a new one at The New York Times, a new job that is likely to be filled with new challenges, as well as new challenges for him.
Roose is leaving behind a legacy as a highly respected editor, who brought the Times into the 21st century and became a pillar of the editorial page.
The Times is now facing a sea change, and the newsroom is beginning to realize it.
The editorial page has always been a highly diverse place.
Roose, the oldest of three sons, was the first editor to arrive at the paper from the University of Chicago and, for nearly half a century, worked closely with its reporters and editors.
He was the third in the family to edit the paper and the youngest, in 1992.
He took over as editor in 1993 and was soon the face of the paper, often appearing at the top of the front page as the paper’s top editor.
As the paper grew, so did Roose’s influence.
His ability to reach people and communicate ideas was legendary, and his work at The Washington, D.C., newspaper helped shape the paper in many ways.
In that regard, he was an example of the “New Journalism” that has taken hold in the digital era.
He also became one of its most influential voices.
Roose had his own vision for the newspaper, but it was one of his core values, said David A. Axelrod, the former senior adviser to President Obama.
“He saw himself as an outsider and a writer, not as a reporter,” Axelrod said.
“His legacy is the New Journalism of the Times.
The New Journalism is the kind of journalism that you don’t see on the cable news shows, but you do see in the newsrooms and newsrooms of many other places around the country.”
Roose had been a journalist since his early 20s.
He spent his entire career in the New York area.
But the Times had changed the way the newspaper is run, he said.
There were fewer reporters and more staff, and Roose became one.
He brought a sense of urgency to the paper.
He believed that it was critical to be able to bring the news to the people and the people to the newspaper.
Roose knew the value of information and the value that news was bringing to the public, Axelrod added.
Roose also brought a unique perspective on the daily grind of a newspaper editor.
He never went out to dinner, he never went to parties.
He worked from home and never had a home phone.
The editors would call him and say, ‘Kevin, can you come over for lunch?’
Roose would say, yes, and he would make sure that we had the right lunch.
Roose was one the few who worked directly with the paper itself, working from the front office and on the editorial staff.
He made sure that the paper would always be accessible to people and that it would always have something of value to offer, Axelrods said.
Roose became a mentor to a group of young reporters who became the staff at The Times.
“Kevin was the face and voice of the New News, and we are very proud of that,” said David Carr, a Times correspondent who has been with the newspaper for more than 30 years.
“There are some who say that Kevin was an indispensable writer and that he would not have been the kind person that he was without him.”
He helped to create a tradition of a New Journalism at the newspaper that is now becoming the most dominant voice in the journalism world.
The paper, which had long been a leader in the traditional way of covering and reporting on news, has become a media juggernaut.
It has long been among the most respected and trusted news sources, and it has long attracted a diverse audience of people.
In recent years, it has also grown to a sprawling newsroom with more than 700 reporters and staffers.
“This is a big, big deal for the paper,” said Laura Smith, a reporter for The New Yorker.
“It’s a great day.
I think it’s a good day for the journalism at the Times.”
For some of those reporters, Roose was a mentor.
“I knew Kevin personally,” Smith said.
“‘Kevin, if you have a problem with a story, go ahead and tell me.
I will help you.'”
Roose had a reputation for being a passionate, driven and sometimes outspoken editor.
But it was Roose’s ability to get people to see him as a person rather than a reporter that was particularly important.
The newspaper’s history shows Roose as someone who knew how to talk to people.
He could get a story right on a single page, and that was something the paper was known for, Smith said, adding, “I have to say that
