Liberal Catnip tipped me off to Howard's latest obvious blunder over the NY Times attacks by the right wing and the liberal blogoshere's reaction to the story :

Most Democratic lawmakers, meanwhile, lay low. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid sidestepped a question yesterday about whether the Times should be prosecuted. Similarly, while the conservative blogosphere was on fire over the Times, many liberal Web sites ignored the controversy.

Howard posted his article today. I've posted eleven pieces relating to the NY Times/right wing attack story which I've supplied the content for or other bloggers have so I guess some of us are talking about it. There are some other issues going on in the world that don't include attacking the media I might add.

The Wall Street Journal had been working on the banking story for a long period of time but did not reach the point of having enough information to publish until Thursday afternoon, according to a staffer who declined to be identified because the newspaper is making no public comment. The Journal does not know why Treasury officials made no appeal against publication in that paper, but editors assume that by then the officials were resigned to the fact that the details were coming out, the staffer said.

Why did the WSJ get a pass by the administration? Was it because they were fed details by the White House? I have a couple of questions for you. How many liberal websites did you look at when you made your assertion and why didn't you name any? Will Hugh Hewitt or Hinderaker be a guest this week on your show to give their unbiased opinion? It's remarks like this one that makes you lose credibility when you talk about the liberal blogosphere.

Here's one that he missed by Larisa.
