What’s it like to be a culture editor in the United States?
As you might imagine, it can be a stressful job.
And while the job description says it all, the job isn’t always as glamorous as it seems.
The job is tough, and it’s not always fun.
But that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing.
“I think culture editors are people who really care,” says John Tully, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic and author of The Culture War: The Struggle for American Culture in the Age of Trump.
“They want to know the truth.
They want to learn how to be in a position of authority in the community that is important to them, to the culture.”
For instance, the editors at The Atlantic work for an organization that’s supposed to be independent of advertisers.
In a way, they’re part of the business.
They’re also part of The American Establishment.
In other words, they might be able to understand why a company like Amazon might be more interested in partnering with them.
And because they’re the only ones who can speak to that company, they can often get inside their heads.
And that can be really valuable.
In fact, The Atlantic’s culture editors have a way of learning about the world that can make them incredibly effective.
“It’s not just the content, it’s also how they’re able to connect with audiences,” says Tully.
“There are some of the most insightful people I’ve ever met.”
When Tully was growing up, he was always fascinated by the way that people talked.
He was a big fan of the way the movies were set.
“A lot of times it was about what happened at the time, and what the movie did, and who was in it,” he says.
“That was the kind of thing that was exciting to me, the idea that people could talk about things that were happening at the moment.
So I always loved that.”
In his 20s, Tully decided to become a writer.
He wrote a book about the history of Hollywood, but it didn’t sell.
He moved to New York City to be closer to his wife and family, and he wrote about that experience on his blog.
He says it inspired him to start his own blog, called The Big Picture, which he describes as “a place where I could get my news from people who were writing about the same things, and the people who knew the people that knew the things that they were writing.”
The blog grew quickly.
It was actually his first real outlet for what he was doing.
“For years I just didn’t think about it,” says Michael Apted, editor at large of The New Republic.
“What I would do in the office was write a story about some other thing that wasn’t happening in my world, like how to make coffee, or how to cook something, or a different way of eating.
I was just going out and being myself.”
The Big Figure quickly became one of the fastest-growing blogs on the Internet, with more than 30,000 subscribers, and a dedicated following of young, tech-savvy, independent writers.
It’s a different kind of community, and one that Tully finds exciting.
“If I’m writing a piece, it will be about something, whether it’s about food or politics or something else that is happening,” he explains.
“And I’m not going to be afraid to say, ‘I’m going to get to the point of it.’
I’ll just say, I’m going for a dive into it, and then I’ll go through all the details and say, OK, now I’m actually going to write about that.’
That’s where the culture of culture editors come in.”
They might be writing about something other than a food blog, but the people they’re talking to are all about it.
“You’ll have a bunch of people who are writing about things they’re passionate about,” says Aptd.
“Then you’ll have people who write about things the rest of the world is obsessed with, and you’ll also have people whose job it is to look for that.”
Tully is one of those people.
He started out as a journalism student, but soon after graduating from Columbia University, he landed a job at The New York Times as a culture writer.
“Being a culture reporter is really exciting, because I can take a story and turn it into something that’s going to resonate,” he tells FourFourSecond.
“At a certain point, if I’m reading a story, I’ll say, Wow, I can see why this is a great idea, or I can tell why it’s such a good idea.”
Tinson says that when he starts his day, he reads everything that he can get his hands on, and puts that into a blog post.
“The idea is that I’m always trying to find out what’s going on,” he said.
“Every single day is a search.” When he
