Mark Pittman, In His Own Words, On Camera

December 14, 2009

You’ve read quite a bit by the late Mark Pittman of Bloomberg.

You’ve read quite a bit about him here at The Audit, where we thought he was one of the very best reporters working.

For Pittman’s funeral reception two Saturdays ago, the filmmakers Leslie and Andrew Cockburn, whose documentary American Casino Pittman appeared in, put together this short film compiled from outtakes from the movie. It got a lot of cheers and laughs at the funeral, but it’s languishing on YouTube, so we thought it could use some pointing out.
