Michael Hastings on McChrystal
Last evening Larry King had several guests discussing the Gen. McChrystal affair. One of them was a very serious looking, bearded fellow who didn’t say anything for a long time as the others kept talking, and we were wondering who he was. He turned out to be Michael Hastings, the author of the Rolling Stone profile that got McChrystal fired. Here is another Larry King interview one on one with Hastings in which he asks him if he expected that his article would have the effect it had. Hastings has an unusual gravitas for a reporter and is not the sort of person you would expect to see writing for Rolling Stone.
Note: there are long pauses between the questions and the answers.
