CNN on Bloggers Covering Libby Trial

CNN's Situation Room Monday ran this segment on bloggers covering the Scooter Libby trial. [Via Raw Story.] TalkLeft is prominently mentioned, with some quotes by me, as to what readers can expect from our coverage, namely, a fresh perspective and gut reactions, from those of us who have followed and written about the case from Day 1.

Thanks to the Media Bloggers Association, I will go to Washington after Feb. 15 (hopefully to cover some of the defense portion, assuming the trial, which is expected to last six weeks, is still going on.) Crooks and Liars will cover a week in early February.

Jane and Christy of Firedoglake have their own press passes, in conjunction with Huffington Post, and are already on the scene in D.C. Marcy Wheeler, whose book on the case, Anatomy of Deceit, will be published in February, who writes as Empty Wheel at the Next Hurrah and used to write for Daily Kos, is also covering the trial.

    Some shameless self-promotion... (none / 0) (#1)

    ... but I'm glad to see that TalkLeft is getting the recognition it deserves.  This is a fine site well worth the reading, that's why I come here.

    As long as you stay humble, and don't get too pleased with yourself and your notoriety I think you you will continue to provide us with interesting and provocative posts and discussions which inform and promote thought.

    Keep up the good work, or I'll come down on you like a ton of bricks.

    Truthout was below the line and cowardly. F*** CNN.
