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.
