Ever since I've become chairman, there have been profiles of me in People, George, The Washington Post, The Detroit News, and all of them could have been written by the same person.
I would like to reiterate that I don't want any profiles of me. I am not newsworthy.
Profiles aren't journalism.
You know, I'm always surprised when I read profiles, and they make me sound so jaded. I am so not jaded.
I write articles, and I do profiles of members of organizations and associations.
When I started, there were no big interviews, no television, no profiles and all that. The publishers were quite shockingly uncommercial, but they did look after their writers.
I have been a print reporter my whole career. It's all I ever wanted to be. I specialize in political profiles. I have probably profiled hundreds of people over the years, people in very powerful positions. People don't always like what I write, but most people still talk to me.
