Michael Hastings made national headlines with his Rolling Stone article "The Runaway General," a story that sparked General Stanley McChrystal's dismissal.
Hastings tells Steve Fast that in a recent media push McChrystal was critical of his reporting, but has never responded to critiques of failed strategy.
Hasting also weighs with some critiques of the media corps of which he has an uneasy relationship.
Hastings hit the campaign train in 2012, covering the Obama campaign. In his new eBook "Panic: 2012" he writes that the press follwoing Obama became starstruck with the president, and that the press eventually becomes enamored with any candidate who they follow on the campaign trail.
