The Best in Media Writing

  • SHARES

The blizzard continues to snarl travel plans, leaving a ton of people bored out of their minds in airports across the nation. It’s times like this when having something good to read (or plenty of alcohol) comes in handy, and Joe Pompeo over at The Cutline has put together a great list of long-form media writing to help.

Number one on the list, which we agree with, is the┬áRoger Ebert profile by Chris Jones in Febuary’s Esquire. It’s an amazing piece that offers a look into the life of Ebert, who hasn’t been able to speak since his thyroid cancer surgery in 2006.

Other articles featured in Pompeo’s list include a┬áNick Denton article by Ben McGrath in The New Yorker and a Glenn Beck feature by Mark Leibovich in the New York Times Magazine. Give some of these articles a try if you’re looking for something to take your mind off of the holiday travel madness.
