Michael Kinsley’s article on Christopher Hitchens is, I think, a must-read. Less for what it says about Hitchens than simply because Kinsley is being infinitely more insightful about the media business — and that’s what it is, a business — than is the usual journo-stew in which, as Duncan says, “When pressed about their craft, journalists, and especially print journalists, generally retreat into some sort of Platonic Journalist Ideal.”

UPDATE: Here’s a free link to the article.
