My latest piece in The New Republic Online documents the way Sports Illustrated has changed in the last two decades. I know we often have fun at the expense of Peter King around here, but I think the stuff he does in the magazine is first-rate. Unfortunately, many of his SI colleagues aren't such solid journalists. Note especially the SI reporter who donated to George W. Bush's re-election campaign -- then gave him a softball interview. (Free New Republic Online registration required.)
