“Ignoring Style can be dangerous”

Howard Kurtz pays tribute to himself for his moment in the spotlight yesterday.

    The evidence is in: Ignoring Style can be dangerous.

    The Lewis “Scooter” Libby trial was briefly thrown into a tizzy yesterday after a juror notified the judge that she had seen my article on Tim Russert’s Wednesday testimony.

    Federal marshals are supposed to excise all trial-related stories before the jury gets its morning papers. But The Post’s Style section, it turns out, was exempted from the scissors-wielding scrutiny.

    Was the jury irrevocably tainted? Jeffress said he didn’t have a problem with the infraction. Fitzgerald agreed. The wheels of justice began grinding again.

    All of which spared me from the humiliating headline: “Style Scribe Sinks CIA Case.”
