Aggravation over aggregation

    Goodbye and good riddance to a man who never let the facts get in the way of his ideology.

    Interesting writer. A self-proclaimed adept at the dark side; not unlike the Lancaster character in 'Sweet Smell of Success'. Like Cronkite, a past pheomenon – will we ever again have a make-or-break voice?

    Alas poor Prince of Darkness. According to his own bio he started drinking by 10am. while taking calls (was that reporting?). Then it was lunch and cocktails. He was a purveyor of a brand of information where errors and facts weren't important. His hook was that you were hearing it from a supposed conservative DC insider. I thought his 11th hour Catholic conversion was curious but if it gave him any solace at all, good for him.

    The Prince of Darkness profored 5 different cover stories about his involvent in the disclosure of a covert cia agents identity. That would make him a liar – not an ideal characteristic for a reporter.
