    I am doing a paper for a journalism class, and wanted to get some opinions on Mike Vaccaro of the New York Post. Thanks

    The paper actually reflects my own thoughts. I was just wondering what other writers thought of someone. Thanks for the insight though, means a lot.

    Do you just lurk on this website and give people shit?

    He's no Brenda Vaccaro. Then again, who is? I mean, other than Brenda Vaccaro herself.

    Brenda has a much deeper voice than Mike.

    To try to get things back on track: Why don't you see if you can get ahold of him and interview him?

    Many students do that with reporters, and many reporters will do it for students. It's a common college class assignment. Explain what it's for and go from there. The most legitimate benefit is that it will give you plenty of real, live, current material of your own that you'd get in a first-hand, journalistic way that will be minus some of the junk you'd get around here.

    Or maybe Vac will see your note on here and reach out to you.

    To answer your question I personally think that he is the best and
    most versatile sports columnist writing in NY.

    He is willing to admit when he is wrong and as a result has built a
    great bond of trust with his readers
  9. He has bad table manners and crappy taste in music and movies.

    1941 was one of the most surprisingly good books I've ever read. Picked it up one day because I needed something to occupy me at a swim meet, thought I'd feel pretty meh, and ended up being engaged enough to rip through it in a day or two.

    I know little of him but respect him just because of this.
