Howard Fineman, a Newsweek political correspondent and television commentator for decades who brought behind-the-scenes insight to news cycles often dominated by horse-race campaign coverage, died at his home in Washington, reports The Washington Post. He was 75.

His death, from pancreatic cancer, was confirmed by his son, Nick Fineman.

According to The  Post, “Fineman spent 30 years at Newsweek beginning in 1980, serving as chief political correspondent and deputy Washington bureau chief during the era when the magazine, then owned by The Washington Post, was one of the most widely read newsweeklies in the United States.

“He was also an analyst for NBC and MSNBC for years and became familiar to television viewers through his appearances on shows including “Hardball With Chris Matthews,” PBS’s “Washington Week in Review” and CNN’s “Capital Gang Sunday.”

“Deeply sourced on both sides of the political aisle, Mr. Fineman earned the admiration of news junkies and newsmakers alike.
