I’ve been gagging all morning on the Washington Post’s self-congratulatory preening about its glory days of the Watergate investigation.
Think about it. It’s been 33 years since cub reporters Woodward and Bernstein pulled down the pants of the Nixon operation and exposed its tie-in to the Watergate burglary. That marks a third of a century since the Washington Post has broken a major investigative story. I got a hint of why the long, dry spell when I met Mark Hosenball, “investigative” reporter for the Washington Post’s magazine, Newsweek.
