The Columbia Journalism Review goes real-time with The Campaign Desk, a weblog of critiques of campaign reporting.
I can’t figure out how to make the item links work, but there are good hard shots by Thomas Lang at Drudge and his followers (including, sadly Joe Lieberman) for distorting Clark’s HASC testimony (January 15 and 16) and at Chris Suellentrop for his failed Fox News parody. Lang is good at tracing “echo chamber” effects.
I agree with Dan Drezner that some of us do this stuff without foundation grants, but CJR seems to be doing a high-quality, professional job so far (i.e., they mostly agree with me, but manage to keep a greater emotional distance). At least it beats Howie Kurtz, who was supposed to be part of the solution and is instead part of the problem.
Personally, I’m happy to have all the help I can get. It’s only January, and keeping up with the lies told about one candidate is already virtually a full-time job. It’s gonna be a long year.
