Wayne Barrett, an icon of New York journalism and one of the great muckrakers of our time, died Thursday.
Sympathies. Sounds like a great man.
Hopefully, he'll hound God into helping us awaken to our responsibilities here.
I didn't know Barrett but I may have read his work in the VV back in the day. He sounds like the kind of reporter we still need and are sorely missing in the MSM.
He certainly turned Matt into a 'go to' reporter. One whose integrity, luckdity and determination has been among the highlights, the very few highlights, of modern journalism.
