It's not all that interesting. *shrug* Would you expect Peggy Noonan to say anything else?

I wouldn't have been surprised to see her repeatedly slam him without presenting another side to him.

YMMV

Noonan has never, to my knowledge, bitten a hand that fed her. This is about as close as I've seen her come; the "he was nice to me when I worked there, but he's been helpless against being brainwashed by the liberal orthodoxy" is pretty much what I'd expect. She can't admit that he's got integrity, because she's built a career on saying the opposite about the "liberal media," but she can't say he doesn't have integrity without backbiting someone who helped shape her early career, so she makes his lack of integrity a natural consequence of working in the media during Watergate, when all those people going after Richard Nixon were just looking to gild the lily.

One I liked. It explains so much more.
