@ezraklein @binarybits You made the wrong call when you chose ignorance over experience.

@curtwoodward Everyone is biased; I don’t see the point trying to pretend that a journalist isn’t biased.

@curtwoodward I guess; it seems silly to me. Whatever you write about any public good or service may have an effect upon it.

@ezrabutler @cdixon If positive articles you write about Paypal creates more users, that increases the value of Paypal’s network to you…

@curtwoodward Gotcha. So how should we view journalists who are bullish on the dollar and write articles flaming cryptocurrency? :-P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to curtwoodward

@ezrabutler @cdixon That sounds terrible. Can journalists not have Paypal / Google wallet / Square / etc accounts if they write about them?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ezrabutler

@ezrabutler Sure, but first hand experience is orders of magnitude more valuable than secondhand. Pretty sure that’s @cdixon’s point.

@ezrabutler @cdixon That is indeed absurd, given that one is legal and the other is not. One is violent and the other is voluntary.

@curtwoodward @cdixon Hard to say. I’ve had a number of reporters interview me, and most of them manage to screw up the details.

@hblodget @cdixon Last I checked, @coinbase made it pretty darn easy. Assuming that you trust their Vault service.
