Friedman’s Fortune Feature

The NYT’s pundit extraordinaire Thomas L. Friedman gets the profile treatment from Fortune magazine today. The resident believer that the world is flat is ooh’ed and ahh’ed by everyone from Mark Warner to Queen Noor–and even gets the ultimate in punditry plaudits: The comparison to Walter Lippmann.

“Lippmann was the voice of what came to be known as the American Century; Friedman aspires to a similar role in what you might call the Global Century,” the mag says.
