Jim VandeHei: David Rogers, a Gruff, Idiosyncratic Former Congressional Reporter, Is the Best Journalist I’ve Known

From a story on axios.com headlined “Jim VandeHei is back with his column on life’s lessons:

David Rogers — a gruff, exacting, idiosyncratic former congressional reporter for The Wall Street Journal — is the best journalist I’ve come across, Axios CEO Jim VandeHei writes.

David, now retired, was my mentor — and sometimes tormentor — in the 2000s, when I was a rising congressional and White House reporter.

Why it matters: David taught me a master class, by actions more than words, about what it takes to be the very best at your craft.
