One More Post Blog: DC Wire

The Washington Post continues to be one of the few newspapers in the States that at a bare minimum has tried to understand blogging and embrace it as a tool of their journalists. There have been, of course, a few fracases involving comments, the ombudsman and what exactly a blog is, but at least they’re learning. Welcome new DC Politics Blog DC Wire which will seek to edify the masses on all the twists and turns of Washington’s local political scene.

    DC Wire got off to a medicore start with the Blog about Ward 3 Candidate and notorious Spammer, Jonathon Rees. Equating the rants and mentally instable actions of Mr. Rees with anything that Mr. Brooks has done (virtually nothing) is simply not right.

    Much of Mr. Rees’s recent activity can be found here:

    I live in Ward 4, so do not have a stake in the Ward 3 race. However, the Post and other media outlets have completely missed the boat on this guy.

    Media Matter claims (and I am inclined to agree with them) that the news media in general has reached such a height of panic about the appearance of fairness that they’re afraid to ever just come out and call flat-out bullshit on something. Someone claiming the world is really flat would get a story about themselves complete with reaction from NASA scientists.
