Tributes: Joe McGinniss

Monday, March 17, 2014

Joe McGinniss had a nose for news, and was tireless in pursuing, and immersing himself in stories, be it then-presidential candidate Richard Nixon (The Selling of the President 1968) or 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin (The Rogue).  Along with Joan Didion and Tom Wolfe, he was known as one of the writers of New Journalism.  He died recently at the age of 71.  He spoke to Leonard in April 2009 for his story about the deal that Palin struck to build a $40 billion pipeline, which had little chance of being built.
