He didn't exactly say that Freepers were first, just the Freepers were saying they were first.

Kind of a non-credit credit.

At least he mentioned the site and used the logo without any disparaging remarks. Watch for the sharp knives to be out in the next few days from Dummie friendly news sources.

Yeah, the FR logo looked great on my 60" screen - it must have been a foot and a half wide!

(Repeating this post from a duplicate thread, in case it gets the axe...)

Yes, some of us wrote to him about that little omission last night, and Howlin sent him the whole thread this morning! Good for Brit, now if Powerline would just step up...

I saw it too. Brit was pointing out that we were the first ones to raise questions about the documents. Anyone have the original thread?

A number of us E-mailed Brit and John Hinderacker yesterday. See: Did anybody just see John Hinderaker of powerlineblog on Fox News?

Who says Brit Hume doesn't read his E-mail!

I just saw the very tail end! I was talking to hubby and heard the words "Free Republic". I nearly fell out of my chair! Hopefully someone out there in freeperland has a video capture card and happened to catch it. I would LOVE to see that.

It's odd how often Taranto quotes DU... and not FR. Hmmmm.

The big FR logo sure looked good on the Grapevine. That was nice of Brit mentioning FR's claim to the document story.

Hey, at least he mentioned us by name - which is more than I can say for 99% of the rest of the media.

Whenever I hear media call us "bloggers" it makes my head spin. Why are they so reluctant to call us by our name for heaven's sake??
