The best insightful analysis here first

The Instapundit linked to this piece by Rand Simberg over at Transterrestrial Musings on the possible effects of The New York Times breaking the NSA surveillance program just prior to the 2004 presidential election.

More broken accountability at the International Fact-Checking Network (@factchecknet) and the @Poynter Institute.

The IFCN allows people to register complaints about the its stable of "verified" signatories to its code of principles. @Google and @YouTube $hould pay attention.
