CNN Gets Scooped on Its Own Story
UPDATE: ACLJ Joins the Fight!

Posted on | June 7, 2012 | 35 Comments

FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION
Very busy today, awaiting developments on The Kimberlin Files. However, Da Tech Guy cleverly points out that CNN allowed Arlette Saenz of ABC to beat them on reporting this story, even though the reported SWATting of CNN on-air personality Erick Erickson was a central element of the story.

For that matter, CNN contributor Dana Loesch is well-informed about the Kimberlin story, and could put CNN’s reporters in direct contact with many others who are involved. But maybe the executives at CNN would rather continue being No. 3 in cable news ratings, and let their competitors scoop them on such an important story, because they are more interested in playing politics than reporting the actual news.

Jeff Goldstein mocks Brett Kimberlin’s self-proclaimed victimhood.

Obviously, having spoken to Saenz about my own role in the story, I owe The American Spectator a follow-up on my May 29 article, “Terror By Any Other Name.” So . . .busy day.

UPDATE: Almost forgot — but Bob Belvedere has reminded us — that Eric Holder testified today before the House Judiciary Committee. Did committee members ask the Attorney General any questions about Senator Chambliss’s inquiry?

UPDATE II: Michelle Malkin breaks the news that the American Center for Law and Justice will defend Ali Akbar:

“Free speech is under attack,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. “Conservative writers are now facing threats against themselves, their families, and their livelihoods merely because they’ve aggressively investigated the history and funding of radical liberals. The ACLJ has a long history of successfully defending free speech, and we look forward to defeating this latest attempt to threaten and intimidate conservatives into silence.”

Busy, busy, busy . . .
