Corn Gets Woodward Stamp of Approval

Say what you will about Mother Jones Washington Bureau Chief David Corn, but over the weekend he got the nod from journalism’s Big Daddy. That would be WaPo Associate Editor Bob Woodward, on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” with Howie Kurtz.

Kurtz in typical nerdy Howiesque fashion, tried to open the door for Woodward to say something unseemly about Corn, suggesting, at least by his question and intonation, that there was possibly something wrong with the way Corn obtained and released the video of GOP hopeful Mitt Romney spouting off at a private fundraiser.

“Quite the opposite,” Woodward declared. …”It’s a big scoop and one of the important campaign stories of the year.”
