  •  Nice job on this Jed.... (8+ / 0-)

    and I especially appreciate the kudos given to the blogosphere for their lead role in getting this story its legs.

    Over and over I hear the "sniffing" and whining from MSM reporters (see Dana Milbank) whenever a challenge is raised to their seeming stance that only "real journalists" can produce sound well-researched and sourced reporting.

    One could quickly note the vast number of stories the MSM has in fact missed or even worse, stonewalled when it was apparent that they had been stonewalled or that the story in question revealed their stupidity, laziness or collusion.

    I think it would be great if we could compile an archive with brief summaries and links to the mounting body of solid and important work done by blogs and blog authors and reporters....including this story and things like Josh Marshall's work on the US Attorney scandal and on and on.  It's powerful pushback whenever the sound of sniffing starts to get annoying.

    Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.
