retail news in context, analysis with attitude

David S. Broder, an old-school journalist and columnist who won a Pulitzer Prize and pretty much defined political coverage during a 45-year career with the Washington Post, died yesterday of complications from diabetes. He was 81.

In its obituary, Politico wrote, “Broder was legendary for the amount of time he spent talking with ordinary voters in battleground states. He picked precincts based on their behavior in previous elections and then flew across the country to knock on doors or talk to people in supermarket parking lots.” And after Broder’s death was announced, tributes to his long and productive career came in from both sides of the political aisle.
