A Daily Bruin Reject?

--a: good read on Ezra Klein in NY Mag

He says he graduated from high school with a 2.2 GPA and barely got into UC Santa Cruz.

If he hadn’t been rejected by the college paper, he might never have become a blogger.

"Persistent Content"--yes, yes, yes!
There is little allowance made for readers coming to a story late and an assumption that anyone who’s been following a story over time will remember all the relevant contextual information.
“When you’re trying to come up with a good approach to reporting on the bleeding edge of where the conversation’s moving,” he says, “you’re just leaving a lot of people who aren’t on the bleeding edge of that conversation out.”

Found it thanks to the Daily Cal Weekender more on that here
