Re: notability: The subject of this article is a well-known financial journalist, published author and a leading expert on the global banking system. He is widely published and has made numerous appearances on television and radio. Indeed, his book and articles for on global banking and the 2008 financial crisis and its aftermath are frequently cited across Wikipedia. The subject has been covered by reliable, independent sources and verifiable sources, which are cited.
As per WP:BASIC
"Primary sources may be used to support content in an article, but they do not contribute toward proving the notability of a subject."
"Wikipedia articles should be based on reliable, published secondary sources and, to a lesser extent, on tertiary sources and primary sources. Secondary or tertiary sources are needed to establish the topic's notability and to avoid novel interpretations of primary sources. All interpretive claims, analyses, or synthetic claims about primary sources must be referenced to a secondary source, rather than to an original analysis of the primary-source material by Wikipedia editors."
Secondary or tertiary sources are really needed here to establish notability. It seems there are a few primary sources such as a book or article he wrote, and his twitter and linkedin. Is it possible to find and include some secondary or tertiary sources?
Thank you. That is very helpful and yes, it will be possible to find some secondary or tertiary sources, including some that may not be online or in English. To be clear, will media organizations that have published interviews with the subject be considered secondary sources? Will sources which cite the subject be considered tertiary sources? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jmccrory (talk • contribs) 04:41, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
This article is incorrectly categorized. Category:Journalists by nationality is for categories, e.g. Category:American journalists, not article on journalists. Category:Journalists by publication in the United States is also for categories e.g. Category:The Charlotte Observer people. Again it is not for articles on journalists.

- The addition of Category:Journalists by nationality and now Category:Journalists by publication has been reverted. Neither of these categories is for articles on individual journalists. Tassedethe (talk) 04:37, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Apparently you are desperate to have the last word, so let's just call the whole thing off..............
