    this isn't a good place to go to looking for breaking news.

     if you want to wait a few hours, however, for a well written post with analysis and context...

      This story has been posted on the internet since Saturday night.

      And it's sad that DKOS which should be not relying on only the MSM for "information" is doing just that. I thought the blogosphere was developed as an alternate source of information for stuff that the MSM will not cover. Or is it just an expansion of the MSM?

        but it's not all things.

        I personally find the story only of middling interest. Now, if they got indicted for it, that's news. YMMV.

        But I am only one of a dozen here. Others might have more of an interest, and if so, they'll write about it.

        Also remember that Sundays are given over to essays written in advance.

        But I'll tell you what DK really is... it's a place you can write your own post, on a weekday and a weekend.

        And if you have your own original reporting to add, go right ahead.

        As far as MSM goes, remember where you are... the pundit round-up. Not a place to make the case about what whether we rely on mainstream media. of course we do... it's a pundit round-up.

        I don't mind criticism, mind you, but some of it kinda misses the mark, no? And you certainly don't want us not to read your complaint.  But that doesn't mean we have to agree ;-)

        In any case, thanks for the comment.
