NPR Catches On

NPR’s Morning Edition led off at 5 a.m. ET with a story by Mary Louise Kelly on the Downing Street memo, including clips from Rep. John Conyers and military families who want to know why their loved ones were sent into combat. Ms. Kelly noted that the story of the DSM has been lying around for about a month but is now beginning to pick up steam as the mainstream media like NBC begins to report stories on not just the memo but the inquiries into where it came from and who knew about it.

Finally…

Let’s keep at it. As Smintheus at Downing Street Memo gently reminded me, there are lots of places that have this information if you’ll only look for it. (Just so you know, I’ve had links to his site and After Downing Street for weeks now.)

And this just in from Raw Story/Yahoo! News: Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC), who coined the term “freedom fries,” is now co-sponsoring legislation calling for an investigation into the truth behind the Downing Street Memo. Pass the ketchup.
