People are telling me that Michelle Malkin just mentioned the blog on “Hannity.”
My kingdom for a video clip.
I don’t know if a TV mention translates into Internet traffic, but if anyone new is visiting from Hannity or anywhere else, please bookmark the main page. And thanks for stopping by.
UPDATE: I owe DRJ my kingdom, such as it is, as she has passed along the code for the video clip:
The “dramatization” will have you on the edge of your seat!
UPDATE x2: Michelle also has the story of a newspaper chain apologizing for running the Ellie Light Astroturf:
A woman named Ellie Light (if that is her real name) recently duped dozens of newspapers around the country, including some here in Wisconsin, into printing her letter praising President Barack Obama as if she were a local resident.
The letter appeared in three Gannett Wisconsin Media newspapers, including the Door County Advocate. As a result, it also appeared on the Green Bay Press-Gazette’s Web site.
…People intent on duping us are using more sophisticated methods all of the time. We catch many mass-mailed form letters, but this person managed to get past editors with a simple misstatement of fact.
Like many newspapers, the Press-Gazette already requires writers to provide a street address and phone number (not for publication) for verification purposes.
We still believe in the inherent honesty of many letter writers, but this case will find us reviewing the incident to determine whether additional safeguards are necessary.
We apologize that this letter appeared on our Web site.
Well handled. Now how about the rest of the 60+ papers that ran this junk?
