—How long did it take to write this piece?
—Probably from assignment to publication, about two months. […] That’s the kind of piece you can do in The New Yorker, because it’s not tied to the news cycle. […] How to look at some of these issues and approach the campaign from 50,000 feet without worrying too much about the news cycle overwhelming your story.
— Ryan Lizza, reporter, sobre la seva peça ‘The Second Term’ a The New Yorker.
