The primary value Peter Daou’s piece on liberal bloggers had yesterday was that it named names, and it gave outlets like Politico an excuse to link to something. Although journalists won’t say so in public because they’ve been told these things “off the record,” they well know who gets under the skin of people at the White House. And that’s why things said by Glenn Greenwald, or John Aravosis, or on FDL consistently get picked up in the media as prime examples of the “professional left.” We hear about it when they call us for comments, or when they want to book us to respond.
