Paul Farhi reports on the media’s coverage of Congress:
A funny thing happened to The Hill newspaper during the eight years Hugo Gurdon has been editing it. At a time when almost every newspaper in America withered, The Hill thrived, growing faster than it ever had before. Once a weekly, the paper recently went to five days a week, with all-day coverage on the Web. Its newsroom has ballooned to 60 journalists, more than double the number Gurdon started with.
