Best print reporter vs. print reporter feud, second place (2000)

Lynn Bartels vs. Mark Obmascik

After the media mag Brill's Content published a puffy piece about how the News covered Columbine, the Post's Mark Obmascik fired off a letter noting numerous gaffes made by the News along the way. A month later, the News's Lynn Bartels, along with colleague Kevin Vaughan, shot back in the same publication and subsequently suggested that Obmascik's own Columbine writing was riddled with errors. Hope those Pulitzer Prizes calmed everyone down.
