Dan Froomkin's last column for the WaPo

And ohhhhhh, snap:

The handful of people who did exceptional investigative reporting during this
era really deserve our gratitude: People such as Ron Suskind, Seymour
Hersh
, Jane
Mayer
, Murray
Waas
, Michael Massing, Mark Danner, Barton
Gellman and Jo Becker
, James Risen and
Eric Lichtblau
(better late
than never), Dana
Priest
, Walter
Pincus
, Charlie
Savage
and Philippe
Sands
; there was also some fine investigative blogging over at Talking
Points Memo
and by Marcy
Wheeler
. Notably not on this list: The likes of Bob
Woodward
and Tim
Russert
. Hopefully, the next time the nation faces a grave national security
crisis, we will listen to the people who were right, not the people who were
wrong, and heed those who reported the truth, not those who served as
stenographers to liars.


They truly have fired the best reporter they had, the only WaPo writer who was worth reading on a daily basis. Read every word. Ouch.
