Just Wondering

Why is it that the best Washington D.C. media scoops come from the New York Observer? Whether it’s the Atlantic, Nightline, or, in today’s case, The New Republic, Gabriel Sherman and Rebecca Dana seem to have better sources out there than the Post’s own Howard Kurtz when it comes to the Post’s own backyard.

Are we mistaken or has the Post really not even mentioned the Atlantic once since it moved to Washington in January?

>UPDATE: A former TNRer writes in and suggests that, even in the early 1990s, the Observer was obsessed with covering TNR’s internal politics and was on top of any internal TNR story.
