Surprise!

Tom McGeveran of Capital NY writes a how-he-got-that-story piece on the Mitt-the-Barber episode, conversing with his former colleague Jason Horowitz (now of the Washington Post). Tom’s diagnosis: good reporting. I don’t disagree.

As Horowitz notes: “I don’t have the luxury of deciding for people what is or isn’t relevant about a candidate’s biography. My job is to look everywhere.” Indeed. It’s not Horowitz who decides where and how and how often the story gets played. There are a finite number of surprises in a Presidential campaign; one of these is a terrible thing to waste. But in this case, the reveal is kinda narrow, isn’t it?
