Bloggers broke foreclosure-gate while MSM snoozed

This precisely echoes how it was bloggers who broke the subprime story, while the mainstream media initially mocked them while doing nothing. Then finally managed to stumble across the story after bloggers did the hard work for them.

WaPo profiles the bloggers at whose determination and research ignited foreclosure-gate. But, as it too typical with MSM, they wait until the end of the article to list the name and URL of the site when it should be in the first paragraph. Isn’t it a basic tenet of journalism that the important facts, like names, come first? But then, maybe they’re afraid of the competition.
