A Lot of Reporter Bashing Going On

There's a lot of Woodward bashing going on in the blogosphere today. I can't really chime in because until his re-emergence as a player in PlameGate, I can't recall reading anything he's written since Watergate. I've never read a book he authored solo. He's largely been a historical figure to me, the reporter who co-broke Watergate through Deep Throat.

Others are more familiar with his work. Arianna rakes him over the coals today for failing to see the story under his nose when writing his book Plan of Attack. Nora Ephron, who was married to his Watergate writing partner Carl Bernstein, provides her view, as does David Fiderer.

John Amato of Crooks and Liars saves his artillery for Newsweek's Michael Isikoff. Jane at Firedoglake takes on Andrea Mitchell. So does Tom Maguire.

I'm just going to read them all and hope to learn something.
