I’ve known and admired Fareed Zakaria for more than a decade. I’ve praised his work here–even though he worked for the competition. And now he’s joining us at Time. What fun! A good part of what I love about journalism is the collegiality, the opportunity to kick around rumors, perceptions and story ideas with all our various Michaels: Elliott, Duffy, Scherer, Crowley, Grunwald–and also our fabulous Nancy (Gibbs) and the occasional (David) Von Drehle, and all the others. I’ve always enjoyed talking politics and policy with Fareed; I can’t wait to start doing it as a colleague.
