Well, there's suddenly a lot of noise in the right blogosphere about a leaked email from Kos to a lot of top-ranked lefty bloggers. Frankly, I haven't written a thing about the allegations that there may have been some sort of quid pro quo in who Kos' partner took consulting fees from and who Kos then endorsed. Frankly if there was such an arrangement, it sounds like old fashioned backroom politics. Not exactly cutting edge.
The email is a different story. If lefty bloggers are indeed following Kos' directions to starve the story of oxygen by not writing about it, those bloggers may damage themselves in the long run.
For the record, I am not on any super-duper top secret mailing lists. I'm not sure if I'd join a club that would have me as a member, to paraphrase Groucho. Nor do I get – or would I accept, for that matter – direction on what to blog about and what to ignore.
It speaks volumes about the sort of people who do, doesn't it?
