Shaun Kenney posted about the possiblity of the Jim Webb campaign gathering personal information about Virginia bloggers during the just-completed campaign...
... and as I read the blogs I was amazed at the number of lefty bloggers who were condoning this behavior and bashing Shaun Kenney.
Question # 1: Would they take the same stand if the story said the Allen campaign had compiled files on the blogger community?
Question # 2: The bloggers who are defending the Webb campaign if, indeed, this really occurred ... did they protest the Patriot Act?
Question # 3: Some have proposed that, because we blog our opinions, we are fair game to being investigated. Would they support that same reasoning for mainstream media reporters? If a journalist wrote something negative about a campaign, would it be okay for the campaign to retaliate by revealing personal information about that journalist?
I was just wondering....
Can you point to a single "lefty blogger" who were "bashing Shaun Kenney"?
Waldo, read the comments under Shaun's post on his site for bashing comments.
Ever read WOS?
I read all of the comments, but I still can't seem to find a single one that's "bashing" Shaun. Would you mind pointing to one specific post? You write that you're "amazed at the number of lefty bloggers...bashing Shaun Kenney," so I assume you should be able to cite rather a large number.
I haven't seen anyone "defending" the Webb campaign for this...just none of us are ready to "believe" this Shaun Kenney claim without something to back it up.
You're a little late commenting on this story ... that was last week's news.
Pesky Mosquito. Buzz..Buzz... SMACK!
