Congrats to Marcy (scroll down to the “blog” category)!
As you’ve mentioned previously, this is what we counter with when David Simon (and others) moan about bloggers not being there when and where the shit goes down. Not every blogger is a Marcy Wheeler but she is an example to any blogger who wants to think bigger.
I remember watching that coverage of the Libby trial (mentioned in the blurb at the link), watching Marcy and Jane Hamsher (just out of the fucking hospital) standing in the snow outside that courthouse, telling us stuff we weren’t getting from the MSM. It made a big impression.
She’s the best
Well done, Marcy! She’s a real gem of the blogosphere.
Well deserved, and more. I am a total fangrrl of Marcy Wheeler.
why isn’t this making newpapers DO BETTER?
Brava! Emptywheel proves once again that it’s not the medium, it’s what you do with it.
Just goes to show, that if you want to be good, you have to do good.
Congrats to Marcy, I think Murrow would have loved her.
Marcy is to blogging what LeBron James is to SF.
I have noticed a trend in the past decade. Lefties in their pictures are smiling. It is refreshing.
Athenae: You too havemade the big time. 😉 Cheers!
OK, not every blogger is Marcy Wheeler, but damn few trad-media journalists are that good either.
As for the Professional Journalist class … they run so damn far behind they wouldn’t finish win, place, or show in the following race.
