Glenn Reynolds hammers the point home with his Main Stream Media (MSM) outlet on MSNBC here, so if this is some hoax or is based on ill informed bloggers, this very important legal and conservative pundit's reputation will suffer. I've read him for a long time, and though Mr. Reynolds and I disagree on matters mostly political, his sources are usually very good.
He again points us to the Agitator, who is filling in for the Main Stream Media in reporting this case. Plenty more information to be found here.
So I guess the answer to the comment string that goes with our earlier post has more to do with trust of bloggers as journalists vs trust of Main Stream Media. Remember, with Weblogs, we, the people, are our own journalists. Just like MSM, we will have folks we trust and folks we don't. Unlike the MSM, bloggers are their own editors and can publish whatever they want. That is, of course, a double edged sword.
But look at the MSM right now, focusing on the simple celebrity of Tookie Williams' case, and nary a peep about Mr. Maye down in Mississippi.
