It may be hard to believe, but this morning’s breakfast panel hosted by PBS featured some fireworks — namely, a fiery debate between Vanity Fair columnist Michael Wolff and Columbia Journalism professor Todd Gitlin. The panel, entitled “News and Documentary in a Tabloid Culture,” was held at the Reuters building in Times Square and featured Us Weekly‘s Janice Min and Woodward’s other half, Carl Bernstein. After being interrupted numerous times, Gitlin reached across fellow panelist Brooke Gladstone, co-host of NPR’s On The Media, exploded back at Wolff. Said Gitlin to Wolff: “You lack grace!”
Enjoy, tabloid-addicted heathens!
