Mike's Blog Round Up
August 12, 2014

If you have not been following the Amazon vs. Hachette dust-up, you are missing out on some really funny commentary as well as some serious comments from the literary set, and snarkitude from the Twitterati! And now, on to the Tuesday links in which we kick Dick Nixon One. More. Time.

Frankly Curious wonders if the corporate media would ever allow Woodward and Bernstein that kind of latitude again.

First Draft remembers Tricky Dicky.

Bonus Track: Zen Comix goes in the way-back machine to Nixon's 1974 (hint: not The Wonder Years).

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors and sometimes at Liberaland. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
