Mitchell "Disappointed" In Post Review

NBC's Andrea Mitchell hits back at Jonathan Yardley's Washington Post book review of her new tome – in a Post chat today. Here's a snippet:
"I was frankly very disappointed because the review seemed to take issue not with my reporting, but with issues that I dealt with in the book -- namely the quite understandable perception that Washington journalists can be too close to their sources. I believe in talking back. I was very honest about how I resolved those conflicts. I describe how I first met my husband long before he was in government and how careful we have been, over the past 18 years since he has been at the Fed, to establish a firewall."

Still, don't expect this debate to go away anytime soon.
