Two-Tweet Twinterview #1: @jayrosen_nyu on Jon Stewart Rally

This week, the Prudence Paine Papers kicks off a new series: the Twinterview. We’ll be talking with news makers and news reporters. The four-question interviews will be short and sweet—complete in just two tweets.

Our first (accidental) interview was with Jay Rosen, a journalism professor at NYU and director of its Studio 20 program. His personal website is pressthink.org.

On October 23, Rosen tweeted about Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity and a request that had been made of him:

Weirdly, a powerful op-ed editor asked me to do a piece begging Jon Stewart to call off his rally as a mistake. http://jr.ly/5jr8 I said no.

That peaked my interest. I tweeted him back:

Why?

He replied:

Why, @PruPaine? Do you mean: Why would such an editor ask me to write a piece asksing Stewart to call it off? Or why did I say no? Or…

Exactly! Yes. And thus the “4 questions in 140 characters/4 answers in 140 characters” Twitter interview (Twinterview) was born.

Here we go:
