This is a tough category. But today we ask you to help determine who is Washington’s most respected journalist. The lineup of contestants includes USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page, WaPo‘s Dan Balz, CNN’s Jake Tapper, WaPo‘s Paul Kane, WSJ Washington Bureau Chief Gerald Seib, CBS’ “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer and Politico‘s Maggie Haberman. A Capitol Hill aide remarked to FishbowlDC, “On the Hill, Paul Kane’s integrity is unquestioned.” Of Page and Balz, a journalist tooted their horns, saying, “I don’t know a single person — politician wise — who would say no to either one of them.” May the most respected journo win!
