Second hand tone…

Howard Kurtz takes a look at Joe Klein’s profile of Sen. John Kerry in The New Yorker. Klein’s reporting may set the tone for press coverage of Kerry. Kurtz cites a similar phenomenon from a Klein profile of Bill Clinton in early 1992. What I find interesting is that Kurtz does not question the idea that reporters might take their cues from The New Yorker or Joe Klein.
