Bleeding Heartland: Is Clinton Genuinely Reaching Out To Bloggers On Iraq?
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Earlier today Sen. Hillary Clinton's campaign actively solicited
bloggers to join in on a conference call hosted by their blogger,
Peter Daou, in announcing a "special endorsement." The campaign
didn't release any more information about the endorsement and it was a
pretty cryptic move, yet I still decided to join in on the call along
with several other major bloggers from across the progressive
blogosphere. So, at 12:30 PM Central time I got on the call to find
out that the special endorsement was coming from former Ambassador Joe
Wilson, the husband of outed CIA operative Valerie Plame. And by
12:53 PM I broke the news on Iowa Independent that Amb. Wilson had
chosen to endorse Clinton. Multiple blogs picked up the news and
reported the news, as they should have because it was a substantial
endorsement. But the traditional or mainstream media didn't pick up
the story at all.
