In today's Sunday NYT Magazine Q&A, Deborah Solomon takes on "Jeff Gannon," the former White House "reporter" for "Talon News," a conservative website. Gannon's real name is James Guckert, and he is believed to have previously run a gay escort service. His "outing" as a fake news reporter in the White House press corps caused outrage in journalism circles. The hostility in Solomon's questions is palpable. Regardless of what a tool the guy is, she may be a little overboard here. Or maybe not. He does deserve some hostility, after all, for being a liar in gaining access to the White House.
