"Washington Post" Gets Scooped Again Over Woodward
Bob Woodward is a law unto himself at the Washington Post. The argument was that his exceptional access and best-selling books brought prestige to the Post and besides they got to excerpt the highlights in their paper. But the last few times around the block (including the revelation of Deep Throat), the Post can't seem to avoid getting scooped by other papers, even when it's about the stuff they're going to print from their top reporter. Isn't that a little embarrassing? On the other hand, Woodward can reclaim a little dignity from the people claiming he is a Bush lapdog since the new book reportedly doesn't make them look good.
