From Atrios:
Partisan operative with no background in journalism, whose work frequently involves passing off RNC press releases as his own stories, is allowed to be a part of White House press briefings day after day, operating under a pseudonym, providing a regular lifeline for Scott McClellan and making it difficult for other reporters to get answers to serious questions. Oh, and he put up a shirtless pic on AOL and registered domain names promoting gay military porn and prostitution.
See, it's that last bit that's selling the newspapers. Before the hack's link to gay love was revealed no one bit. None of that partisan operative stuff mattered. Not to the "liberal media" anyway.
