I agree with this Cory Pein piece in Columbia Journalism Review 100 percent and have made the same argument with blog triumphalists for months.

Blog-mob rule led by conservative bloggers using skewed wingnut faulty logic in a fierce defense of Bush, is nothing more than that. The evidence doesn't support forgeries in memogate. The same crowd used these tactics on John Kerry. The mainstrream press, easily coopted by the limited time frame in between entertainment committments simply reports the trainwreck giving equal credence to lies and factual conclusions. Or status short of conclusion from either side.

The "he said, she said" we don't know, view from nowhere, allows lies and rumormill conclusions to get equal billing. The truth is the cost of such blatant innuendo propaganda campaigns.
