PETER BLUMBERG, EDITOR, US LEGAL, BLOOMBERG —
“David Watts Barton worked with me for a period of about two and a half years while he was a freelance stringer for Bloomberg News. As an editor on the legal news team in Bloomberg’s San Francisco bureau, I assigned him to cover stories and edited his copy. David was always reliable, agreeing to cover news events on short notice and juggling his schedule when necessary to accommodate our needs. David handled a variety of assignments on the court beat involving such topics such as the California state budget, nursing home neglect and financial fraud. He monitored cases for us, attended court hearings and consistently turned in accurate stories on tight real-time deadlines. In summary, he did everything we asked of him and upheld our high professional standards.”
