HuffPost Writer Pulls Heartstrings, Bashes Leibo for Snarky This Town

It’s really tough to compete with death.

Still, we think NYT‘s Mark Leibovich wins out over the views of HuffPost‘s Nancy Doyle Palmer, who writes a pretty fierce piece against the value of his summer blockbuster This Town. Headline: “This Town, My Town, My Loss.” Her husband’s unfortunate passing and the publishing and popularity of Leibovich’s book coincided.

Washington Whispers sits down with former “Today” show host John Palmer, who now works for Retirement Living Television.

    “I didn’t even know what it was,” he laughs. He does now, hosting three shows and acting as a real-life demonstration of many in today’s retirement class: working for fun, not just a paycheck. Geared for the 55-plus crowd, the network created by Maryland retirement community bigwig John Erickson is growing fast.
