I wonder if the NY Times would have written the same bad review for a Clinton press secretary's book. For some reason I doubt they would say Joe Lockhart was "whining" or "taking potshots."

Just Me:

Did anyone think the NYT would give anyone from the Bush administration a break?

In the Gannon interview, I think he was dead on with this answer:

"Let's stick with Gannongate, its has a better sound. I would never presume to tell the White House what to do. Do Democrats really want the White House to investigate reporters?"

If the roles were reversed, the MSM would be having a coniption fit at the suggestion.

Steve J. is quick to define Gannon & Talon as "fake", but I wonder if he can define what constitutes a "genuine" journalist?

Um, look. I am gonna try to get a more "meaty" interview with Gannon. But I don't think his fifteen minutes of fame are up. If the conservatives will not run away from someone because they might be gay and moonlighted as an escort, there's a REAL story here about 1) David Brock (dork) 2) investigating journalists--I mean what if Democrats get back into power and follow through and 3) the difference betweek Gannon and Eason/Rather are so striking that they would fill a book. I hope Gannon does.

If you look at this outside the box, he is in a unique position to demonstrate that much of the dem claptrap about Republicans hating certain people is 100% wrong. He can show us the Big Tent part of our party and show the difference between, for instance, not wanting legalized "gay marriage" and not being homophobic.

You shouldn't pick on our friend, Larry Zieger, like that.

A sidenote - sampling of nom de guerre and just enough to pique your interest.

Get this, some were politically active. Go figure. I wonder if their name effected their work? Further, I wonder if the CIA would recognize them under their previous names? Hmmm. Be concerned. Be very concerned.

Clive Tolson:

Any of you guys see Fox News Channel's first on-air segment on Gannongate? I must say it was pretty darn thorough and evenhanded. None of that gay sex stuff, just the part where the White House may have tried to manipulate the media.

Anyone have the vid, lemme know....

Yeah, I know. I thought about it as I typed it. I hoped the disclaimer would shield me but no such luck. Technically, I'm not sure I'm in violation. Surely I meet one of the derivative exclusions, right? Judges?
