Editor & Publisher Magazine today profiles the brothers Fainaru — Steve is a Washington Post reporter who has been covering the Iraq war from Baghdad. Mark is half of the Chronicle team that exposed Barry Bonds’ steroid use and who may go to jail for not revealing the source of a grand jury transcript in that case. They grew up in the Bay Area and their mother still lives here. Steve and Mark talk to each other every day but are rivals in some ways. “I was always fascinated with news and newspapers were always around us,” Steve remembers, recalling the Los Angeles Times as a breakfast-table staple in his younger days. “As long as I can remember, I was into it.” Mark credits his brother with sparking his initial interest in news and sportswriting, adding, “I was the baby brother who followed in big brother’s footsteps.”
