Sun Q&A: David Nitkin on state politics issues (MD4Bush)
Baltimore Sun ^ | 1/9/06 | David Nitkin

Stuart, Baltimore: How come The Sun is not investigating the identity of "MD4Bush" and his possible ties to O'Malley?

Nitkin: I've said repeatedly that The Sun is interested in learning the identity of the Internet poster who talked about O'Malley. The source of the information must come from the Web site itself, www.freerepublic.com. We've gotten some information from them. We'd like to get more.

I guess the Sunpapers don't have any investigative reporters capable of following the MD4Bush trail on their own. It's funny that WBAL-TV doesn't have the same problem.

Interesting. Indeed, WBAL TV 11 or for that matter 1090 AM doesn't seem to have a problem following up on the story.

They cover for their own I guess.

A dodge. The Sun "knows" the procedures and processes for getting that information.

I wonder what additional information The Sun wants from Free Republic. They already have the e-mail registration addresses and location of the IP addresses MD4Bush used to log on here. The only thing they probably don't have that Jim Robinson has is the actual IP addresses used. If they track back to a National ISP, I doubt the actual IP address would tell them much, unless it happens to be a static IP address that can be cross-linked to the X-Originating-IP address of an e-mail sent to The Sun by a known person. Or the IP address can be tracked back to the MD Democrat Party's ISP. MDDems.org ultimately traces back to Hurricane Electric, IIRC.
