Survival Of The Fittest...
"For a man who kicked off a running story that put a reporter in jail, kept another one up nights thinking about it and led to the indictment of a high-ranking administration official, Mr. Novak has become Washington’s less-than-visible man."
"He is like Typhoid Mary," Edward Wasserman, a professor of journalism at Washington and Lee University, said of Mr. Novak. "Everybody is keeling over around him and he just keeps skipping along."
"It is a role that has come to suit him. Mr. Novak is, of course, the high-profile master of keeping it on the down-low. When prosecutors were issuing subpoenas to reporters, sparking a debate that went all the way to the United States Supreme Court, Mr. Novak said nothing.
