‘Atlantic’ editor Goldberg battled sexism charges after saying men more qualified writers than women

‘It’s really, really hard to write a 10,000-word cover story. There are not a lot of journalists in America who can do it. The journalists in America who do it are almost exclusively white males….the other way to approach it is, huh, you’re really good at this and you have a lot of potential and you’re 33 and you’re burning with ambition, and that’s great, so let us put you on a deliberate pathway toward writing 10,000-word cover stories. It might not work. It often doesn’t.’ – Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief, The Atlantic
