E&P editor: I always wanted to be Clark Kent, not Superman

Editor & Publisher editor Greg Mitchell says he was a big Superman fan as a kid. "I like to say that I probably came to journalism by comics. ...I was probably one of the rare people who wanted to grow up to be Clark Kent instead of Superman." MITCHELL ON MEDIA BIAS: "I think practically any newspaper is more objective than practically any television network. But people will say, 'Oh, this newspaper's biased; they had an editorial on such and such' -- well, that's what editorials are for. They confuse the news pages with the editorial pages."
