Three by Dan Gillmor

Dan Gillmore always hits the nail on the head. Dan is a journalist turned blogger that does a better job than anyone when it comes to covering journalism in the blogsphere:

Hypocrisy in the Ranks of the Powerful

It's not just DeLay who's a hypocrite. Turns out that Bush sued a car-rental agency, looking for a deep pocket.

Bruce Schneier, a world-class authority on security-in-technology issues, points out an AP story reporting on the flagrant lies told by the Bush administration's Transportation Safety Administration about its scandalous handling of "private" passenger data. AP won't call the agency's dissembling for what it is -- lying -- but Schneier does.

Another Journalist on the Govt. Payroll
