Most journalists in Washington or New York have been Marty’D at one point or another. This may sound like the journalist is getting slimed, but it’s far more pleasant than that.

The topics that Illnois-based Marty Rudolf addresses with reporters on Twitter typically range from soap operas to wrestling to politics. But he’s quite savvy. On Monday, the king of Twitter in media circles, approached National Journal‘s serial tweeter Ron Fournier on the assassination of JFK, the Secret Service’ shoddy protection of the White House and the troubled veteran and NFL Commish Roger Goddell.

It was a bonanza — Rudolf got answers, however friendly or curt, to all of his questions.
