The Redemption of Wayne Barrett
Earlier this year, Pete Hamill died. Unless you were/are a journalist of a certain age, the name might escape you or send you to Google or Wikipedia to find out about him.
Pete Hamill was a reporter. Along with Jimmy Breslin and Wayne Barrett, those three covered sports, politics and corruption in New York City for over 50 years. It also means they covered you-know-who.
Hamill and Breslin were linked together. In 2019, HBO made a documentary, Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists, detailing their friendship and competition over a 45-year period.
