Wasn’t there a court case that sort of defined “journalist”, and the definition did not include “bloggers”?
Bloggers = graffiti vandals hiding behind a computer.
Probably on either coast, but that has nothing to do with Darrell Issa and who he and his committee gave the report to. Issa knows who was doing the heavy lifting, and he knew most of the press, with the exception of CBS and Sheryl Atkisson, ignored the story. It started with bloggers. He could give the report to whom he wanted. It’s possible one of the Democrat Committee members made the release. Whatever happened, it was unfortunate and inappropriate in my opinion.
