Newsweek Reporter Wanted to ‘Take Out’ Giuliani

A reader points out this fascinating tidbit from Newsweek campaign reporter Michael Hastings, writing about Rudy Giuliani:

I had a recurring fantasy in which I took him out during a press conference (it was nonlethal, just something that put him out of commission for a year or so), saving America from the horror of a President Giuliani. If that sounds like I had some trouble being “objective,” I did.

Nonlethal? Well, that much is a relief. How does Newsweek’s reputation survive its coverage?
