The Kid

On a slightly related topic:

After reading and digesting section II (Niger) of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report, I’m impressed with the care and accuracy shown in the work of one reporter: Robert Novak. Re-reading his original column from this perspective, I find that he was careful to provide perspective, sought out multiple sources to verify facts and was both concise and incisive.

Novak is usually dismissed as a partisan hack, but it looks to me like he could give more than a few journalists lessons on how reporting is done.
