Here’s a typical example of how the news cycle works now that the blogosphere interacts (or doesn’t) with independent and corporate media:

July 1, 2007, Breaks Story of NSA Whistleblower Adrienne Kinne

May 13, 2008, Democracy Now picks up the story of Kinne…

May 19, 2008, Breaks Story of NSA Whistleblower David Murfee Faulk

October 9, 2008, ABC News picks up both stories with a focus on phone sex

October 10, 2008
Congress notices, yawns, scratches its ass, goes back to what it had been doing. Talk shows make jokes about the phone sex.
