GANNON GONE WILD Here's Atrios on the latest Gannon revelations:
It's odd that the media is suddenly skittish about this. Would they run under the table if it came out that on her free weekends [CNN White House correspondent] Dana Bash could be rented out for the small sum of $1200?He's got a point. Still, I'm not sure it's quite that simple: Gannon has already been called out as a fraud--and he's resigned. So the public dissection he's now getting does, I think, risk seeming mean-spirited and prurient.
That said, if the shoe were on the other foot, can you imagine what fun the GOP would be having with this?
