Profiles of the Rich and Famous

Call this the post of the profile. Here are three interesting stories about some of the most powerful (white) men in the news and publishing business.

The Guardian of London takes a look at David Remnick, the editor of The New Yorker.

New York Magazine looks at another powerful NewYork editor: Bill Keller, the executive editor of the New York Times.

A man with a different kind of power: Charles Frazier, who is about to release his second novel Thirteen Moons. He is so powerful that Random House paid him $8.5 million for the book, based on a one-page description. Scott Rudin chipped in another $3 million for film rights.
