Tom Wolfe on "The Dan" (from Page Six):
TELEVISED news can't hold a candle to newspapers, according to Tom Wolfe. "As newspapers are declining rapidly . . . I would just point out, all news today comes from newspapers. All of it," the 'Bonfire of the Vanities' author told Charlie Rose the other night. "Television has never initiated a successful story in its life. When they have a big story, it's always wrong." He cited as an example Dan Rather's bogus story about George W. Bush's National Guard service and declared, "Idiots!"
