Peter Kaplan, who served as editor of the New York Observer for 15 years, died Friday of cancer, the New York Times reports. Kaplan’s vast influence on journalism was apparent in the reaction to his death on Twitter.
Crushed. I met Peter Kaplan when I was 17 and revered him ever since. Just 2 wks ago he seemed to be recovering. http://t.co/yLxZnaXJv0
