As I noted in this post over the weekend, buried in that DOD document dump on the compromised cable show ‘military analysts’ was a fun little email in which someone (the sender’s name is redacted) wrote attacking Rajiv Chandrasekaran, an assistant managing editor at the Post and author of Imperial Life in the Emerald City for having the temerity to do a week of guest posts at TPMCafe “a super-liberal blog … edited by Bush-bashing uber-liberal Josh Marshall …” In particular, they were steamed at his responding to a Post OpEd defending the occupation by legendary Bush hack Dan Senor.
In any case, that was mainly good for laughs and fun for us here at TPM. But it’s got us to thinking there are probably other little nuggets buried in that document that either got missed by the Times reporters or simply didn’t rise to the level of getting included in their big piece. But the topic is one that can shed a lot of light on how these folks saw the different networks, which hosts and reporters were more receptive to getting played, what the different strategies were. I suspect there’s a lot of interesting stuff buried in there.
