>UPDATE: Says one reader about Kaiser’s above piece:
Charles Kaiser is busy patting himself on the back for predicting five weeks ago that Downie was going to announce his retirement. Whoopee. Great scoop, Charles, as every other media reporter was reporting the same thing. What Kaiser should really be doing, though, is giving himself a kick in the ass for “reporting,” in that same piece, that David Ignatius was a “leading inside candidate” for the job.
