    BBC broke the story on Panorama on the 20th of Marck, 2005.  Transcripts here:

    This gives a complete context for the Downing Street minutes, and gives direct quotes from  the material.  Whoever leaked, leaked to the BBC.

    dKos picked it up on the 30th of April, but the story did not get much Kos play until Congressman Conyers' Diary on the 2nd of May.

    Knight Ridder picked it up on the 5th of May.

    CNN picked it up on April 12.

      Breaking Through  May 11, 2005

      I, along with many of you, have decried the lack of media coverage of the Downing Street memo. That may be turning around.

      Tonight, CNN posted a story, though I am not aware if it has made on on the air. Please let me know if you have seen it. The LA Times has a very good piece as well. On the media front, my message to you is to pat yourselves on the back and then get back to work. Letters, calls and emails to your local newspapers and national media outlets make a difference. The Washington Post and New York Times have yet to cover this story in any serious fashion. Where is MSNBC? When Fox covers it in any serious way...that's when we take a break.

      Who controls the media, controls the fates.
