The Libby trial isn’t fun and games. So what to make of this New York Times article, For Liberal Bloggers, Libby Trial Is Fun and Fodder. Yup, professional journalists takes things like corruption and outright lying with the soberness they deserve. NYT can’t even determine whether the title of the weblog should or should not be hyphenated.
We’ve been watching the Firedoglake coverage of the Libby trial and find it smart and much more devoted and detailed than any network or cable reportage, which, of course, would rather drag dead women around the screen than worry about real investigating and avoid pissing off those to whom it now shares dinner, parties, and jokes.
For the Times “Liberal Bloggers” are fun and fodder. Can you hear me laughing?
