Logrolling In Our Time
Study this carefully, young journalists, and maybe someday you too can write blowjob profiles of Tom Friedman and then get your book pimped in his NYT column:
* Thomas Friedman is On Top of the World, By Garrett M. Graff.
* "Editor-at-large Garrett M. Graff edits Capital Comment and covers politics and media. He is writing a book, The First Campaign: Democrats and the Digital Age, to be published in fall 2007 by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, which also publishes Thomas Friedman's books."
* Friendman's May 23 column: "Here's the sad truth: 9/11, and the failing Iraq war, have sucked up almost all the oxygen in this country -- oxygen needed to discuss seriously education, health care, climate change and competitiveness, notes Garrett Graff, an editor at Washingtonian Magazine and author of the upcoming book "The First Campaign," which deals with this theme."
