“I am a garbage pail,” the gossip columnist Liz Smith once said. “My best stories come from other newspaper people and media people. My best stories come from people at The New York Times and CBS and NBC and ABC and Time and Newsweek. People who are frustrated by what they know and don’t have a place to print.”
"Liz Smith, a Gossip and Friend" is from the February 05, 2018 Lifestyle section of The New York Times. It was written by Jacob Bernstein and narrated by Kristi Burns.
