In the introductory paragraph to his Jeff Greenfield interview ("Spinning the TV News Cycle," Dec. 30), Howard Rosenberg writes: "Greenfield was a political speech writer and consultant before joining CBS. . . ." Don't you think it would have aided the piece if we knew which political party he wrote speeches for and with whom and for what did he consult? I am willing to bet Rosenberg a Beefeater martini, straight up with a twist, if Greenfield were a conservative Republican that fact would have been included, possibly snidely.

THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE: A Cautionary Tale by Jeff Greenfield (G.P. Putnam's Sons: $22.95; 288 pp.) It's a high-concept novel, however uncinematic: What would happen if a U.S. President-elect died before the electoral college ratified him, and a few Joe Blow electors realized the Constitution gave them power, legitimate power, to broker the presidential vacancy?

Jeff Greenfield changed employers, not skins when leaving ABC News a year ago to become senior analyst at CNN. The New York-based Greenfield remains one of TV journalism's true Renaissance men, writing and thinking as well as he speaks, and equally smart about media and politics. No wonder, for media and politics have regularly intersected his career as they did the nation in 1998 when CNN made him a key cog in its coverage of the scandal threatening to topple President Clinton.

Men don't talk to each other. Well, OK, they talk royal flush vs. full house, Shaq vs. Kobe, Red Sox vs. Yankees. But they don't sit around, as do women, and reveal, share intimacies and frailties. Right? "That's a myth," counters writer-director Andrew Bergman, who's been meeting weekly in New York City with five men for more than two decades.
