NEWS NOTES

Today’s WaPo Media Notes, Howard Kurtz: From war to politics to scandal, three recent articles were each based on solid reporting. But none acknowledged the elephant-in-the-room question of whose agenda was being advanced through the leaks that provided the news for the story.

IN MEMORIAM

NYT: William Safire, a speechwriter for President Richard M. Nixon and a Pulitzer Prize-winning political columnist for The New York Times who also wrote novels, books on politics, and a Malaprop’s treasury of articles on language, died Sunday. He was 79.

VF remembers Dominick Dunne.
