Firedoglake, Jane Hamsher's blog, is getting overwhelming praise today, both from within the blogosphere and the traditional media for their work on the Scooter Libby trial and for the years leading up to today.  Glenn Greenwald had this to say last month:

It is virtually impossible to closely follow the Libby trial without relying upon the work of the blogging team assembled by Jane Hamsher and FireDogLake. Hamsher built FDL by becoming (along with her blogging partner, former prosecutor Christy Hardin Smith) literally one of the country's leading experts on the Plame scandal, long providing some of the most insightful analysis, and even breaking stories, on her blog.

While Jeff Jarvis at Buzz Machine noted the new dynamic. As did James Gordon Meeks (NY Daily News) on C-Span in the first clip I upped for Jane. The second clip is from today on Fox News where James Boyce (Democratic Strategist and Huffington Post contributor) squares off with Rich Lowery (The National Review) in typical Fox News fashion.

Marcy Wheeler's report from the trial today is the third clip. Anyone wanting a comprehensive look into this case ought to read her new book Anatomy of Deceit.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
