15 Minutes of Blogging

Ho-hum blogs.....

I've noticed something, well, disturbing trend since the 2004 election. That being the overall boring-ness of blogs. Blogs like Little Green Footballs, Polipundit, who led the way in breaking "Rather-gate", seemed resigned to boring and 'boorish' diatribes on "hotlinking" (give me a break), and the lastest babe in bikini pictures.

Back in the early days of the internet (cir. 1991-1992), I was considered one of the most prolific newsgroup posters' on the web. It was fanastic. Journalism students like me found it fantastic that from a computer and a 1200 baud modem we could put out a works that would be read world-wide. It was a very exciting time. Yet as more and more people joined in the fun the postings became more and more ridiculous, and bane. Newsgroups had their 15 minutes. Now they are nothing more than breeding grounds for porn posting and other less than edifying things.

I'm hoping I'm wrong, but blogging may have had it's fifteen minutes of fame as well.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
