Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and Gabriel Arana (The American Prospect, gabrielarana.com)

On The Posner Show, Sarah speaks with Gabe Arana, web editor for The American Prospect, about the magazine’s current financial crisis. Gabe says conservatives are smarter about funding a media infrastructure, while the liberal donor class has not been. Sarah worries about the future of long-form journalism in an age of rapid-response online media. She cites Gabe’s article on his experience with reparative gay therapy as a great example of this kind of reporting. Turning to the presidential race, Gabe thinks the resignation of an openly gay foreign policy advisor shows that Romney is a wimp. Sarah wants to know why Obama can’t evolve on gay marriage already.
