When C.I.A. Director David Petraeus stepped down due to the discovery of an affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell, it meant the end of the career of a man known for pushing against institutional thought. The impact on the C.I.A. was one story journalists had to pursue. The other was the potential of a national security threat.
Journalist Evan Thomas, covered the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal for Newsweek. The historian and author, who also has written extensively about the C.I.A., tells Steve Fast that journalists walk a fine line between news and tabloid gossip.
