In a profile of Seymour Hersh, Scott Sherman analyzes Hersh’s recent articles for The New Yorker:
The rage and sarcasm are generally absent from the pieces; the tone of the writing is chillier and more detached; the articles are filled with consequential facts, but Hershâ€™s fierce analytical powers are not always brought to bear on those facts. Itâ€™s almost as if Tina Brown sent Hersh into battle with a bazooka, while Remnick armed him with a high-powered rifle.
Still, if there is a smoking gun in the Bush White House, Sherman says, Hersh is the journalist most likely to find it. (Via Romanesko.)
