We haven’t laughed out loud while reading someone’s answers to our FishbowlDC Interview survey in a long time, but we sure did when we read Kristin Roberts‘. This lady is sharp! She’s also shares our love of disco fries and disdain for Jenny McCarthy (she’s a public health menace!) -so she’s all right in our book.
Roberts has been Managing Editor for National Journal since October of last year, and as such has been responsible for NJ‘s reporting across all its platforms -digital and print. Before that, she spent 11 years at Reuters, holding many positions, ultimately becoming news editor and deputy bureau chief for their Washington bureau.
But without further ado, ladies and gentlemen: the FishbowlDC Interview with Kristin Roberts…
Name something every journalist in DC does that drives you crazy. Criticizes other reporters, so I won’t.
You’re about to be served your last meal. What will it be? Disco fries.
2014 will be the year of the ____? Slapdash over-analysis.
If you were a carbonated beverage, which would you be? Why? Mexican Coke. I’m rarely sweet, but when I am, it’s the real deal.
You’re developing a signature scent. What would you call it? Eau de rondelles d’oignons frites.
