Our Incurious Press
Over at Raw Story, we've been poring through thousands of requests made of the Pentagon under the Freedom of Information Act since 2000, that blogger Michael Petrelis (who rocks, by the way) FOIA'ed for in the hopes of finding ones made by ex-New York Times stenographer Judith Miller.
Not only were no requests filed by Judy, but - together - The New York Times and USA Today and The Wall Street Journal made less than 40 as John Byrne points out at Raw Story: Freedom of Information logs shed light on media's military curiosity.
Editor and Publisher also made note of this bizarre incuriousity: Are Media Using the FOIA Enough to Get Military Info?.
More later on this.
