More on Jeff Gannon

It appears as if this story is picking up some speed. I just saw a segment on Countdown with Keith Olbermann on MSNBC about Gannon and have read various articles on the internet. The MSNBC bit mentioned that Gannon may be thinking of filing suit for libel and slander; however, it is unclear exactly how suits work with bloggers, who were the ones that first linked him to the homosexual websites. Here is another article by Frank Rich of the New York Times. It gives a good account of everything that is going on - how Gannon was apparently hired by the White House to ask the easy "softball" questions, and so forth. Also, here is an excellent blog which gives as much information as possible into the secret identity of Gannon. As one of my readers mentioned on my first post about Gannon, it appears that he is in some way connected to the ousting of the CIA agent Valerie Plame. What a strange thing this all has become...and its not over yet.
