Waiting for "Transit" Author To Be Outed

Philadelphia City Paper's serialized novel, Transit of Venus, is cutting close to the bone of Philly's Fox affiliate, says Philadelphia City News columnist Stu Bykofsky. The novel began running early this month and details the perils of blow-dried anchors and stacked interns. "It’s clearly written by someone familiar with local TV in general and Fox in particular, someone who disdains the pretty on-air types — and someone who can write," Bykofsky says. Reminding readers that it didn't take too long for Joe Klein to be outed as "Anonymous," the author of Primary Colors, Bykofsky says thinks he may know who "Anonymous D" is and expects his guess to be validated.
