Carol Loomis retires at 85, and people still ask her: Why now?

We chatted briefly this morning about that thing Greg Moore said about journalists not being as valuable after 40 (and I still don’t see the comparison between football players and ballet dancers), and then I saw this Q&A with Carol Loomis, who retired this summer after 60 years with Fortune.

Even if you’re not interested in business journalism, you’ll want to read this. She’s brilliant.

    I thought it was interesting that she thinks that a lot of the news that appears online is useless and full of inaccuracies. I think it is true that a lot of times journalists are under a lot of pressure to put out a lot of content in different formats, and it’s also interesting since Greg Moore put such a heavy emphasis on Twitter.
