A style guide for writing about the rich – Donald Borenstein – Medium
HOW TO WRITE ABOUT THE RICH Do not broadly attribute a company’s work to their owner/CEO. It is always relevant to note how people have accumulated wealth, and who they have harmed to do so. Never omit it. Be skeptical and don’t just publish a wealthy person’s claims or without doing due diligence or offering a critical corollary. Don’t trip over yourself to humanize a rich person and make them look good — you’re a journalist, not a PR person. Don’t let it all be about them. It’s not fucking news if a rich person likes Rick and Morty or whatever. If you’re writing from a place of personal perspective, you should write about them with the same bilious contempt they have for human life.

Kirsten Gillibrand Is an Enthusiastic NO
Through her fund-raising and Off the Sidelines PAC, Gillibrand has raised close to $6 million for women candidates in the past five years. “I will help you run,” she tells a young woman who says she’s thinking of entering politics at a recent event at the Manhattan women’s club, the Wing. “It doesn’t matter if you haven’t worked your way up. The guys run every time. I can’t tell you how many 30-year-old dudes believe they should be senator or president. Women, we’re like, ‘Well, maybe after ten years of working …’ No. Just run for the office you want to run for and run on the issue you want to fix.”
