"It's one thing to fight for what you believe in, another thing to fight for what others believe in." -- James Wolcott
James Wolcott (born 10 December 1952 in Baltimore, Maryland) is an American journalist, known for his critique of contemporary media. Wolcott is the cultural critic for Vanity Fair and contributes to The New Yorker. He also writes a blog.

Born in the suburbs of Baltimore, Wolcott attended Maryland's Frostburg State College for two years. From there, he moved to New York City to work at The Village Voice.
