Apparently Ellie Light and her compatriots don’t rate very high

January 25, 2010

😦

This morning I tweeted Jake Tapper about whether he was planning on questioning Robert Gibbs on the Ellie Light issue –

@jaketapper – are you going to ? WH about Ellie Light astroturfing? http://tinyurl.com/yazeubd This seems like typical Axelrod

Later I followed up with a tweet about who else might ask about this –

Sent @jaketapper a tweet asking if he was going to ? Gibbs on Ellie Light. Any other reporters that might have guts too? Major Garret?

and then tweeted Major Garrett

@MajoratWH – are you going to ? Gibbs about Ellie Light astroturfing? http://tinyurl.com/yazeubd This seems like typical Axelrod

Tapper responded that it just wasn’t that big a deal –

@JenniferHunt64 it’s not a question of guts. it’s a question of priorities. there are much bigger issues than letters to the editor.

Major Garrett hasn’t responded.

So I guess that’s a no on anyone actually confronting the White House over this.

Oh well. I guess we will just have to wait for something similar to occur under a Republican administration for everyones outrage meter to peg. This was supposed to be a joke. Awhile back someone made a comment about only being concerned with outrageous outrages. I was definitely NOT implying bias on Jake Tappers part just disappointment that this doesn’t seem to be a bigger story. For the record I respect the work Jake Tapper does and I apologize for insulting him.

    All the same I’d like to have the WH on record denying they have authorized or paid for any similar sort of astroturf efforts, especially since such a program has been suggested by Obama’s advisors.
