It’s not every day that a major news network dedicates important programming time (Wisconsin and Hawaii today!) to a discussion of in exactly what ways a recent New Yorker article is so awesome, as happened just a few minutes ago (a little before 2 p.m. Eastern). The article in question was Lizza’s look at John McCain in the most recent issue. They even showed a screenshot of the New Yorker website.
Update: They kept Lizza on after the 2 p.m. jump—he’s rather telegenic! I hope to see more of him.
Hello! I’m Emily Gordon, an editor, critic, copywriter, and pre-web internet nut. Emdashes, born in 2004, spent many years as a New Yorker fan blog. The project garnered some nice compliments and press.
The blog’s now treading the territories of punctuation, publications, movies, design, and other things that stir me.
Over the years, I’ve worked with a brilliant brigade of culture writers, editors, and artists. You can read all about the people who've helped build Emdashes here at “Who We?” (That’s a New Yorker joke. Old habits die hard.)
I welcome submissions, questions, corrections, and ardent, obsessive contributors. I also host occasional book-related contests and giveaways. Questioners and publishers, just email me.
Jennifer Hadley designed the original Emdashes pencil logo, based on a 1943 Dorothy Gray ad.
