Stewart usually stayed in Washington and covered domestic politics, and Joseph traveled the world to cover foreign affairs conservatives by political conviction.

The Center - Stewart Alsop. But Washington’s essential power is political. It is in Washington that the great domestic crises must be dealt with, and the great crises of foreign policy too, up to and including the ultimate choice between peace and war. This centralization of power in Washington is no doubt a regrettable fact. Washington is now permanently the center of the United States, as Moscow is Russia’s center, or London England’s. It is this, and only this, that makes Washington worth reading about.

Joe Alsop attended Harvard when Harvard was a rich boy's finishing school. Joe Alsop did not deserve his lucrative and satisfying life and career
Joe Alsop attended Harvard when Harvard was a rich boy's finishing school. Because of Harvard and family connections he was accepted by the high society of Washington, DC. Without obvious talent he became a syndicated columnist. During the 1950's he warned about the non existant "missile gap" with the Soviet Union. Joe Alsop did not deserve his lucrative and satisfying life and career. I am glad he lived long enough to witness America's defeat in Vietnam. I mourn those who died in that tragic, futile war, for which Joe Alsop deserves as much of the blame as anyone.
