Feud Between Politico and NJ Festers

The dog fight between Politico and NJ continues.
Matthew Cooper of NJ seemed to have written the definitive story on Sarah Palin‘s use of the term “blood libel” in defending against critics that blame her for the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Some charged that she didn’t understand the history of the blood libel when she made her remarks. But Cooper had a different take: In his late Wednesday afternoon piece he said he thought “blood libel” was chosen purposely to appeal to Palin’s pro-Israel evangelical base.
Taegan Goddard at the Political Wire had first briefly raised the possibility that Palin’s statement was a “dog whistle…to speak to her religious base.” It was four sentences on Wednesday before Cooper’s piece ran. Goddard later linked to Cooper’s 13-paragraph story.
Politico, however, chose to refer to Goddard’s one sentence about “dog whistle politics” while completely ignoring NJ‘s lengthy piece. Politico also mentioned MSNBC’s Ed Schultz and Politics Daily columnist Matt Lewis, all without, hmmm, a single mention of Cooper or NJ.
