David Weir


I had a long and illuminating conversation with David Weir today. His name has come up several times during my Ramparts research, but I didn't realize until today how much I could learn from him. I won't rehearse the details here, but the sheer number of overlaps (Rolling Stone, Center for Investigative Reporting, Mother Jones, etc.) could fill a lot of space.

Here's a link to his blog for the curious among you.

When I was an aspiring reporter, I did an internship at the Center for Investigative Reporting, which was located at the time in a narrow alley in San Francisco. David Weir was there, hot off his amazing reporting on the gas/chemical leak in Bhopal. He was always encouraging and helpful to our batch of interns, telling us that we, too, could do some significant reporting. He had great stories about Rolling Stone, too.
