Untitled[edit]

I've reverted the page a couple of times to remove what appears to be an unsourced, unreferenced, and therefore unveribible attack. Addere 15:27, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

I have started to add links to this page on the pages of people that Krista Tippett has interviewed - most recently Jimmy Carter and Jennifer Michael Hecht. Yiming689 03:45, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

NOT[edit]

Please review What Wikipedia is NOT (and WP:COI). [1] Wikipedia is not a directory, a list, or a webhosting service.

Also, this article needs citations. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:52, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Now we have a new account deleting cited text and citations:[3] SandyGeorgia (Talk) 22:27, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

I depuffed the BLP a bit -- still a tad puffy, alas. Collect (talk) 00:42, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

WYSU and birthdate[edit]

In earlier versions of the article, Tippett's birthdate and divorce were uncited. But on closer examination, the WYSU source uses Wikipedia as a source, so it could have also been using Wikipedia to source her birthdate. We need a better source for her birthdate, or to remove it. And a source for her maiden name. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 21:20, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Krista Tippett (née Weedman, born 1960[1]) is a journalist, author, and entrepreneur. ... She has two children and is divorced.[1]
Several sources cite that Krista Tippett was born on the night John F. Kennedy was elected president.[2][3] Mariahism (talk) 22:58, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
The sources for her maiden name are her byline in Die Ziet[4]
And this book linking her maiden name and married name: [5] Mariahism (talk) 22:58, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
I've added the birthday citation, but someone else will have to opine whether those sources verify her maiden name, or if that is original research (assumption that is her given name). SandyGeorgia (Talk) 23:25, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Eh. Close call on that. I'd have to say "no, synthesis". A search in the Brown Alumni Directory verifies "Weedman" as the name she used at Brown, but that's not citeable.--SarekOfVulcan (talk) 01:28, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
