Covering Financial Markets for the WSJ with Gregory Zuckerman

Episode Summary:

With so much misinformation circulating online, it’s more important than ever to have old school journalists and newspapers providing high-quality reporting. That’s why we’ve brought in Gregory Zuckerman of The Wall Street Journal to talk to Jeff about the state of the media and his predictions for the biggest stories on the horizon in the world of finance. Listen in to learn about Gregory’s process and why media organizations are booming despite the hostile news environment.

Full Show Notes:

In an era of fake news and widespread distrust in the media, standard-bearer media organizations like The Wall Street Journal remain a beacon for hard-hitting reporting on what’s going on in finance as well as the world at large. On today’s show, Jeff is talking to Gregory Zuckerman, Special Writer to The Wall Street Journal who focuses on money and investing.

Listen in as Gregory explains his process for finding interesting stories, why successful companies hire people who show potential as opposed to just hiring for open positions, and why some media organizations are booming despite open hostilities.
