Jack Anderson

The great muckraking journalist has died, aged 83. There’s an appreciative Guardian obit which recalls how much Anderson was loathed (and feared) by those in power. FBI chief J Edgar Hoover once described him as “lower than the regurgitated filth of vultures”. Wow! To be so reviled by such a creep as Hoover is praise indeed.

Very good biography of Anderson on Spartacus.schoolnet.
