Bernstein Ft. Wayne speech on AP

The Associated Press: Bernstein to Reporters: Quit Rushing: "Carl Bernstein took reporters at a news conference to task for not spending enough time on stories when he found out many weren't staying to listen to his speech."

Although I'm not sure his speech had quite the investigative aspects as, say, Watergate.

  1. I just saw this story last night. Interesting situation.

    Bernstein was certainly self-important about the issue. But there were also many people at his talk, and he discussed things important to Fort Wayne; so it did deserve better local coverage.

    He seemed to be saying, if your going to cover a story, local media, really cover it. We do unfortunately get much half-ass coverage of new in this city.
