    That Sullivan piece is beyond must read. It is Compulsory Reading. It should be in bold. It is also interesting that Jay Rosen describes it as a “hit piece” I am under the impression that using the facts and actual words of the subject are, well, journalism. Then again, I never held Rosen in much esteem anyway.
