The list includes Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic, the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein, Yale’s Stephen Carter, Meghan O’Sullivan of Harvard), and others in academia. Goldberg and Klein will keep their day jobs at the Atlantic and the Post, reports Michael Calderone. The academics, too, will write for Bloomberg View in addition to their teaching jobs. Calderone wrote on Thursday:
