Yesterday, we posted an anonymous source's account of a heated exchange between WaPo journalist Mark Leibovich and Fox News correspondent Brian Wilson at the Howard Dean photo op. At CJR, Brian Montopoli asks Leibovich himself about the incident:
Skeptical of such accounts, we cornered Leibovich today. "Yeah, I can confirm it," he said. "It involved Brian Wilson of Fox News -- not of the Beach Boys. And he was not giving out good vibrations." He said Wilson wasn't holding a notebook, and, "for all I knew he was Jeff Gannon, based on the tone and insistence of his questions."
