I was reading Dinesh D' Souza's Ronald Reagan over the weekend and came across a quote from New York Times reporter Steven Weisman regarding covering Ronald Reagan. Weisman talked about Reagan's good natured appeal to people and that he was "frustrating quarry."
Lest anyone doubt, D'Souza's account the research regarding Weisman's journalistic approach towards Reagan (and by common sense, other Republicans) came from ex—Clintonite Sidney Blumenthal.
Weisman has been roundly criticized for his attacks against Israel, carried out on the pages of the New York Times. The view of him as biased and self—obsessed — anything to get a kill — is confirmed in this book. A practictioner of gotcha journalism.
