When it comes down to it, Kos and the Moonbat left don't like to "Speak truth to power", especially when it's an Inconvenient Truth and the power is the gravy-train of their blogosphere empire.
By James Joyner
TNR’s Jason Zengerle has what he purports to be an email from Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos to several big name liberal bloggers asking them to starve the story about his and Jerome Armstrong’s alleged blog-for-pay scheme of oxygen by simply ignoring it. The close:So far, it seems to be working in that the left side of the blogosphere has virtually ignored the controversy.
My request to you guys is that you ignore this for now. It would make my life easier if we can confine the story. Then, once Jerome can speak and defend himself, then I’ll go on the offensive (which is when I would file any lawsuits) and anyone can pile on. If any of us blog on this right now, we fuel the story. Let’s starve it of oxygen. And without the “he said, she said” element to the story, you know political journalists are paralyzed into inaction.
What a bunch of unbelievable idiots.
Oh, and by the way... if there was a mailing list that was used as a smoke filled room for the right-side of the blogosphere, you'd hear the Left in an uproar over a coordinated effort to manufacture coverage and news stories.
But, I suppose that if it's a fight between Good and Evil (and you're on the side of good), then hypocrisy and ethics don't really matter.
Wizbang is also covering...
*** UPDATE ***
Forgot to mention that it also seems that the Kossacks appear to be projecting onto their foes the "culture of corruption" that apparently surrounds their dear leader.
