In the self-promotional culture that now dominates modern journalism, some try to make an event, story or quote all about them. Some journalists are even subtle about it. But Washingtonian Editor Garrett Graff does it with an unparallelled expertise. Congratulations to Graff (or something like that). He’s referring to an award won by New York Magazine.
