Guide to the Wednesday (Feb 21st) Libby Trial Live-blog

This is an index of links to the Firedoglake Libby Trial Liveblogging. I am trying to make it as easy as possible to go read the details of the trial as recorded by Marcy Wheeler [Emptywheel of The Next Hurrah.] Do not refresh any more than necessary, as Firedoglake's server is being hit very frequently. That's why it is so slow to load or sometimes comes back reporting "Unable to Connect."

As before the links are in time sequence with the oldest at the bottom and the newest at the top. The numbered links are the actual live-blogged trial reports. The others are discussion.

When you reach the end of each Firedoglake Libby trial post you will see a place for a credit card or an address to mail a check to. If you are reading this material, there is no money to pay for publishing it except donations or the pockets of Jane Hamsher and the bloggers, none of whom are wealthy. And Jane is delaying the start of her chemotherapy to be in Washington D.C. for this.

Please contribute whatever you can afford.

And if you are teed off (as I am) about how the for-profit news organizations are cutting back on reporters and investigations, this is partly because the newer news media has not figured out how to pay these costs and the older Newspapers and TV are losing revenue they used to get. Go to Frontline (PBS) and check out the series called "News Wars." It explains a lot.

To see all my posts indexing the Liveblog of the Libby trial from Firedoglake, click on the Label "Liveblog" (below.)This trial offers a lot of hints at the many crimes committed by Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld and others.

It also clearly lays out how our mainstream media has failed us. If you want an extremely clear example of the problem in our media, go read today's column by Glenn Greenwald in Salon. Newsweek's Richard Wolffe describes what a fantastic job the media is doing, and how misunderstood they are by the Bloggers. Glenn then takes his claims and shows the words published by Wolffe himself that demonstrate his lies or psychotic failure to understand the reality of his own failed work.
