Where to get your Fitz Fix :)


Oh boy, it's Fitzmas time! If you've been sitting on your hands waiting for the Scooter Libby trial, you're not alone: this is huge! And while the actual trial isn't due to begin until next week, I think we can agree that we want to be poised & ready to dine on all of those juicy newsy morsels. Here's where I plan to get my Fitzmas fix:
  1. Firedog lake: yes! A blogger 'crashed the gate' and secured a press-pass for the trial. Pachacutec has already served up some tasty treats from this week's juror-selection proceedings. If you're too busy (or uninterested) for his liveblogging, read his daily summaries (X posted here). He's doing Jane & the gang proud :)
  2. Murray Waas: now this guy's been all over the CIA leak story from the get-go. He truly fed us when we were starving! Murray's blog can be found here (or here), but you really have to check out his National Journal stories for indepth goods.
  3. David Corn: the veteran of The Nation magazine has been covering the case from the beginning. (he also posts regularly on his blog).
  4. David Shuster: the MSNBC justice correspondent has provided liveblogging from the jury selection proceedings and promises to be a useful source in the weeks ahead. Too bad he works for Tweetybird. (BTW "Hardblogger" is a most unfortunate moniker).
  5. Carol Leonnig: Leonnig is the Washington Post reporter on the scene. She's not great for deep insight but that's ok.*
  6. Dan Froomkin: my FAVOURITE person at WaPo.com. Although his beat isn't Justice per se, he provides some of the best links & commentary going. Daily read, for sure!
Well, that's my compilation for now. Please feel free to add suggestions! Merry Fitzmas :)

*by 'insight' of course I mean: all-things-Patrick-Fitzgerald. What did he say? How did he sound when he said it? Could you see it in his eyes? Will he save the planet for us? Isn't he dreamy? Why oh why won't he return my calls?!

You too, eh? Or maybe I should say "You neither, eh?" Sigh. I'm so frustrated that he ... I mean, the trial -- isn't being televised. If you hear of a press conference, send up signals.
