As chief mergers and acquisitions reporter for The New York Times, Andrew Ross Sorkin has won praise for his ability to forge sources deep within Wall Street and criticism for his direct style and quick rise to fame.
In our Media Beat interview, he says that the column he’s most proud of was actually the one that caused his own paper to admonish him publicly — a piece encouraging automaker GM to pursue a government-sponsored bankruptcy.
“I think that part of the reason the column was so controversial was the idea that you were going to put this company out of business and that you were even talking about it as openly,” Sorkin explained. “If you go back and look at what the government ultimately did and all the steps they took in between, it really actually follows the column almost to a tee.”
