Burt and Vladimir Putin

Burt Herman (on the left in red, not the guy in the tie) is a journalist who has covered stories across the U.S., Europe, the former Soviet Union, the Middle East and Asia. He is a 2008-9 John S. Knight fellow at Stanford University.

Why the Naked Journalist? It’s about stripping away the pretenses, getting to the essence of what journalism is. It’s about not getting hung up on the good old times or nostalgia for the past that only prevents us from looking forward. It’s also because of all times I’ve gotten late night calls from editors and had to file stories from the comfort of my couch, au naturel. (Also, I figure anything mildly related to nudity and/or sex will boost my search engine rankings.)
