Press the Meet

I figured Arianna would beat me to this. But I felt rather awkward watching Russert attacking Broussard yesterday. Citing right wing blogs as some God's of information gathering. It was obvious that Time was trying to swift boat Broussard, but in the what Tim accomplished was the antithesis to that, Russert in confronting a man at the front lines of Katrina managed to actually put an end to the swift boating of Broussard.

It was one of those magical moments on TV when the media is told to shut the fuck up and stop legitimizing right wing lunatics running blogs.

Anyway read Ariana's piece.
