Another blogger breaks a big news story ahead of traditional media. Josh Marshall’s Talking Points Memo blog reports that “Ben Barnes, the guy from Texas who got President Bush into the Guard way-back-when … has already taped a lengthy interview slated to appear in the not-too-distant future on a major national news show in which he’ll describe the strings he pulled to keep Bush out of Vietnam and apparently more.”
Marshall says its Dan Rather for 60 Minutes. This despite threats from the Bush camp that they’ll put him out of business if he spills the beans after all these years. Yeeeehaw!
