I had a long and illuminating conversation with David Weir today. His name has come up several times during my Ramparts research, but I didn't realize until today how much I could learn from him. I won't rehearse the details here, but the sheer number of overlaps (Rolling Stone, Center for Investigative Reporting, Mother Jones, etc.) could fill a lot of space.
Here's a link to his blog for the curious among you.
