You can crash on one set of rocks or the other set of rocks,
by David Talbot

You can crash on one set of rocks or the other set of rocks,
and they crashed on the other set of rocks,
which was probably being too little to be commercially viable.
- David Talbot

Even more important maybe, or equally more important at least,
is they don't have to scrap for a living.
- David Talbot

me to say that but I think the New York Times is important.
I also think there's an occasional piece that will pop out.
- David Talbot

I'm almost 50.

- David Talbot

Journalism is not just a cause, it's also a wacky profession.

I have enormous respect for Steve Johnson,
and as I've told him, Feed was one of the inspirations for Salon.
They were up there before we were.

- David Talbot

I don't think we would still be here if we hadn't gone public.
- David Talbot

The only school that let me in was U.C.
Santa Cruz, which is where I went.
They didn't have a journalism program,
so I took sociology, which is the closest thing to journalism.
- David Talbot

On the other hand, we raised $25 million by going public.
It's that money that we used to build this company,
to build the circulation, to build a high profile and
to hire staff that made Salon what it is today.
- David Talbot

After Watergate, which happened when I was in college,
I became increasingly inspired by journalism as a way to change the world.
It sounds corny, but to wake the public up,
to serve a higher cause.
- David Talbot

It's like a cast of actors; you're all working together
closely under pressure to produce something everyday.
And when we put up an issue, it's like the curtains opening on a new play.
I really like that daily sense of surprise.
- David Talbot

People sort of take it for granted, but the more you
see of the media world the more you appreciate a paper
like the Times where its family continues to invest
in editorial quality and I think it's the truly is
the best paper in the world.
- David Talbot

Most magazines have become wallpaper,
they're all the same, all the same celebrities.
It's really an abysmal time in American journalism right now.
But occasionally one story or two will pop out.
- David Talbot

While I'm critical to the Bush presidency,
it's been enormously beneficial for Salon because we're
seen as kind of an aggressive watchdog on the Bush White House.
Particularly since Florida, our readership hit a whole new level,
and we held onto those readers.
- David Talbot

The entire economy, of course, is locked in a down cycle right now.
Last time we weathered this was during another Bush presidency in '90.
We were locked in it for a year and a half and everyone came out of it.
- David Talbot

I don't think Fox News or Rush Limbaugh need Clinton it turns out.
I think there's a hunger out there for -
whether it's on the left or right -
a more lively and provocative type of political journalism.
I think Salon and Fox on the other side have both benefited from that.
- David Talbot

The entire American media apparatus bought into the drug war -
which is an enormously damaging and costly undertaking for this country -
and there wasn't enough critical reporting about it
and that's why it's gotten out of hand.

I came at age in the '60s, and initially my hopes and
dreams were invested in politics and the movements of the time -
the anti-war movement,
the civil rights movement.
I worked on Bobby Kennedy's campaign for president
as a teenager in California and the night he was killed.
- David Talbot

Do I regret taking the company public? Yes and no.
Yes, because it put us under enormous pressure for
a young company to go public at that point in its history,
something you never could have done in the old days.
- David Talbot

I think we've broken story after story that the rest
of the media refused to break even when they had the
story because they were scared of the story,
or they just didn't think it was appropriate.
- David Talbot

I think there is a difference between Slate and Salon.
I think we both serve important functions on the Internet.
As more and more Websites disappear,
I'm thankful Slate is still around because it makes things less lonely.

it out in the media marketplace for dollars and for readers.
In some ways that's a blessing because it takes a lot of pressure off you.
- David Talbot

I knew I wanted to be a journalist ever since I was a teenager.
While it is interesting and gratifying to be on the
business side and to see how that all works,
the main reason I kept a business role here was to
protect the editorial integrity of Salon.
- David Talbot

A lot of my idealism was frustrated by the end of the
'60s because of the way things went with the assassinations
and the sense that the political establishment was
so fixed in its ways you couldn't change anything.
- David Talbot

Other than that one year, Salon has been very cautious
about the way it spends money.
For instance, since last year, we've had virtually no marketing budget.
It's just word of mouth.
And our circulation continues to grow that way by breaking news stories.
