One of the Most Important Lines in the Vanity Fair Story About the New York Times and Washington

Via Ben Domenech’s Transom (you should be a subscriber), I found this fascinating story about the rivalry between the New York Times and Washington Post.

They have been competing with each other to get the scoop on the White House. Both have been working sources and getting prime leaks. I suspect many of their sources, if not all of them, are the same. But there is one line in the entire piece that I think needs way more attention and it highlights one of the problems mentioned in the story.
