Larisa Strikes Again!
Also at Raw Story, a less colorful version of my Judy Miller post from the other day: Fallen New York Times reporter had questioned 'biolab' trailers.
Plus Prosecutor, Libby make new filings in CIA leak case which is most interesting for what I wrote about The New York Times' 'bizarre' excuse for belatedly publishing a correction for their article last Sunday based on the original Fitzgerald filing which was wrong (go read Jeralyn Merrit's take on the Libby filing for the best blog account of that and The Washington Post's R. Jeffrey Smith for the best in the printed press).
Also a few things I'm a little late in linking to:
Jay Rosen's Murray Waas is Our Woodward Now (which includes a brief mention of my Raw Story scoop about The Washington Post's decision to hire a liberal blogger...and a jab at some A-list bloggers who have cowardly froze me out the last year...but I would like to thank Matt Stoller for correcting the record...Matt has class...the others don't).
Jeez. I just don't get why there doesn't seem to be much blogosphere interest in the work that John Byrne and I (along with Muriel Kane, Larisa, and others who may have helped along the way) have done exposing Amy Ridenour's synchronized collaboration with convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
Aside from the kick-ass crew at Talking Points Memo and Muckraker (link), nobody fucking links to our articles.
What the hell is up with that?
Is it too boring a story or something?
While others (like Franklin Foer) have touched upon the collaboration between the conservative "non-profit" thinktank and Abramoff's clients, Byrne and I have proven it.
Anyway...here's the latest chapter which ropes in Tony Rudy: Former DeLay aide paid thinktank to advance Washington lobbying efforts.
