David Petraeus' Other Seduction

Howard Kurtz: "David Petraeus had another love affair long before the one that cost him his job running the CIA. It was with the press."

"The retired general's skillful courtship of journalists brought him a career's worth of favorable headlines and has, to a remarkable degree, softened the coverage of his fall from grace. Petraeus accomplished this in part by granting reporters access--though none quite as extraordinary as that accorded his biographer, Paula Broadwell, who several news organizations have identified as Other Woman in the extramarital affair he has acknowledged."
