In this case, the Idaho media failed to inform the people of Idaho about a major story - even though they had it in front of them for a full day.
NYC's Mayor gave a donation of $200,000 to an Idaho issue and The Idaho Conservative Blogger (ICB) broke the story. But Idaho's press was ethier asleep at their keyboards or purposely over-cautious by not linking to him.
Or maybe they were waiting for the New York Tiems to break the story....
These Idaho folks didn't cover the story for almost 24 hours, though it was right in front of them.
Twenty four hours later. Did I say that already?
Why did they, en mass, not link to ICB's site?
The story had a strange reminiscent feel to it.
And ICB had a strange Matt Drudge feel to his piece.
I'm kinda wondering if Mayor Bloomeberg's Blue Dress stains weren't big enough for the Idaho press to appreciate? ICB saw the dress and the stains...
I'd imagine they should pay attention to Idaho's own Matt Drudge.
