    might do a good story on this.  Leet's hope he picks it up.

      •  Outstanding! n/t (none)
      •  I hope Olberman does it justice. (4.00)
        I'm appalled at the MSM framing this as "did the bloggers go to far" aspect.  

        Did Bob Novak go to far when he "outed" Valerie Plame?

        Geez!  The hatred! The hypocrisy!  

        If there are any "real" (aka MSM/SCLM) journalists out there reading this, how can you live with yourself?

        And shame on you for not doing this work yourself! SusanG & her gang are nothing short of heroic, but they shouldn't have had to do it.

        •  Why are you appalled? (none)
          It is exactly the same as when Chimp lied about saying that he did not care about OBL during the debates and the corporate whore media let him get away with it, focusing 24/7 on how horrible it was that Kerry called a lesbian a lesbian?  
        •  God bless Keith and Countdown! (none)

        •  Olbermann just hit it out of the park ... (4.00)
          ... the "softball thrower" just got himself sent into the stratosphere courtesy of the bat of "Hammerin'" Keith Olbermann.

          With the WaPo's Dana Milbank batting cleanup, "The Big O" hit for the cycle in the first 10 minutes of his broadcast, exposing many arcane, little-known aspects of the story to public scrutiny for the first time.  "Ali G without the irony", as KO calls him, was unmasked as a fraud, and the willing complicity of the administration was made crystal and undeniably clear.

          Someone send Keith the "domain registration/website launch/JG credential issue" timeline.  He's sure to pounce on this as a juicy follow-up to a sterling reportorial effort.

    •  I hope so (none)
      KO continues to be one of the few willing to recognize and air our concerns. I also hope that you all are still watching his show. Journalists that haven't lurched far right should be rewarded with our support.

      I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward freedom and democracy. But that could change. -Dan Quayle
