Raymond Hernandez in today’s Times on Mr. Weiner’s resignation:
‘Mr. Weiner’s news conference was brief, but the circuslike atmosphere continued after he had left the podium.
Benjy Bronk, a writer for “The Howard Stern Show” who had heckled the congressman during the appearance, held his own session with reporters outside explaining his outburst.
“I’m trying to get to the truth and, uh, get on camera,” he said.’
Aha! The heckler is not a moralist; the heckler is just trying to get on camera. I’m afraid that many moralists are just trying to get on camera.
