Liebling and Philip Hamburger, more space and time than was available to reporters of the day. The New Yorker writers used their good fortune to advantage. In stories, "Profiles" and "Reporter at Large" articles, Mr. Mitchell helped to pioneer a special kind of reportage, setting standards to which later generations of reporters would aspire.) {http://www.nytimes.com/1996/05/25/arts/joseph-mitchell-chronicler-of-the-unsung-and-the-unconventional-diesat-87.html?pagewanted=2}
