Media Myth Alert
Dana Milbank wrote Sunday in his piece on TNR's "Post Apocalypse" that "in the mid-1970s," the Post "took down a president." That's not true, says W. Joseph Campbell. To argue that the Washington Post took down Richard Nixon is to "misunderstand the scandal and to indulge in a particularly beguiling media-driven myth," he says.
