Sharing a plane ride with Dan Rather some years ago, Jeff Greenfield started talking to the CBS News anchor about journalism. Why, he wondered, is it so important to be 10 minutes ahead of everyone else? "What's wrong with the way [the analytical French newspaper] Le Monde does it? You get there a couple of days later, but you find out what's going on." Rather reacted with stunned disbelief.

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.

Jeff Greenfield said it was the perfect way to end the golf season. But the way he played this year, a community college individual state title was the only suitable ending. Greenfield, a freshman at Golden West, punctuated his record-setting season by shooting 76-68--144 to win that title Monday at Glendora Country Club.

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.

Jeff Greenfield has spent years examining media and politics, distinguishing himself as one of television's most astute voices during 14 years at ABC News and more recently as a senior analyst at CNN. While still rooted in politics, including his role questioning candidates at this week's presidential debates in advance of Tuesday's California primary, Greenfield has also indulged in a little moonlighting, exploring what might be called the "CEO mind" in a new monthly PBS program, "CEO Exchange."
