Takes on Baltimore

January 10, 2008

Second link from The Atlantic today: Mark Bowden’s piece “The Angriest Man in Televison” about David Simon, the creator of The Wire.

After watching the first two episodes of season 5, I wondered how he researched/created the subtleties of the newsroom floor. Answer: He was previously under the employ of the Baltimore Sun, the paper he skewers portrays this season.
