Dan Gillmor on Grassroots Journalism, Etc. points to The Gannon Scandal, Not Continued.
Salon: See no Gannon, hear no Gannon, speak no Gannon. “It’s stunning to me that there are questions about the independent press being undermined and the mainstream press doesn’t seem that interested in it,” says Joe Lockhart, who served as press secretary during President Clinton’s second term. “People in the mainstream press have shrugged their shoulders and said, ‘It’s a whole lot of nothing.'”
I still find it weird that for two years this guy walked into the White House with Press Corps credentials and asked questions of the President of the United States. Who thought up this crazy idea? Who checked out this guy’s background? What were they thinking?
