  • Instapundit reports that while many journos don’t like the recent subpoenas issues by the army, some “seem to confuse” their ethical issues with political ones.

  • Riehl World View claims that the “AP and E&P have teamed up to perpetuate a lie.” The lie being that “many U.S. troops in Iraq oppose escalation.” What do you think?

  • Nielsen BuzzMetrics press release revealed that 18 blogs are responsible for the 100 most popular blog posts of 2006.

Crooks and Liars’ posts on Stephen Colbert’s monologue at the White House, and Keith Olbermann commentary on Rumsfeld, were the number 2 and 3 posts, respectively.
