Slate’s Plotz: So What Does He Do?

Slate‘s Editor David Plotz is the subject of a lengthy interview this week in the latest installment of mediabistro’s SWDYD (So What Do You Do?). In it, he discusses the hiring of David Weigel and why it wasn’t a pass off from WaPo – both Slate and WaPo are owned by the same company.

Plotz goes into detail about his management philosophy – it’s not based on a– kissing or fear. He also admitted to being distracted by a 50-foot billboard of a Michelle Obama lookalike hanging outside his workplace window.  “I had to lower my shades, and kept them lowered until they removed the billboard a few months ago,” he said.
