  • Books? Who needs books when you have the Internet?

  • On yesterday’s Reliable Sources, Howard Kurtz spoke with Slate’s John Dickerson on “the darker side” of his mother, Nancy Dickerson. For the full transcript, click here.

  • NBC News announced its Midterm coverage today. Brian Williams will “lead the network” along with Tim Russert and Tom Brokaw. The “nonstop coverage begins today and continues through Election Day.” Also, Campbell Brown will report on voter trends and Lester Holt will look ahead at the 2008 presidential race.

  • Tim Russert is the “grand inquisitor.”
