Even in a conversation, albeit over Zoom, Jeffrey Goldberg is first and foremost an editor:
“There would be a comma there, by the way. Sorry, I tend to punctuate my sentences, and sometimes I go out loud.”
“When you join The Atlantic … and, you know what, let me word this right.”
“Tell me when I’m rambling off the rails here.”
That attention to detail has served Goldberg well during his four years as The Atlantic’s editor in chief, a position he landed after proving himself time and time again as a talented reporter and remarkable writer.
