Lets give Sir John Hurt a more dignified photo eh Tangle.

He was magnificent in 1984 and Midnight express

Investivative reporter who wrote critical Trump piece in Jan 1979
Wayne Barrett died in January.

His Like Father, Like Son Jan 15,1979 article was the first of many.

He has been given credit (by Senator Chuck Schumer himself! ) for a Democratic pick-up in the 1998 Senate race where Republican incumbent Al D'amato lost to Schumer.

D'amato made his major campaign issue the almost complete absence of Schumer in the Senate in 1998 and Schumers only response (oft repeated in the most expensive campaign in history ) was the self-defeating, "THE tRUTH Chuck Schumer has a 92% lifetime attendance record " as if that helped him.

But Barrett somehow managed to get a ton of tips after digging relentlessly , with the help of an army of interns, in the Long Island county of Nassau (D'Amato was a member of the board of supervisors when he ran for the Senate successfully in 1980) ffor any government documents that could put D'Amato in the spotlight. It resulted in Barrett getting Board of Supervisors minutes showing the then GOP Senate candidate missed 91% of votes while aggressively making his 1980 Senate run.

The story ran on the night before the election and sunk the Republican incumbent''s campaign as his attendance attack on the future Democratic leader was essentially the main beef he felt voters would have been concerned with enough to reject the candidacy of.
