    good stuff.
    you come away knowing that the guys that run it are slimebags.

    I think the most salient parts are describing Guthrie's past dealings. His advocacy group was/is obviously a scam.

    What about the lack of member benefits of USANext? Isn't AARP's biggest draw is its dicsounts and member activities? USANext probably comes up really short here. If you had a compact and understandable statistic that could represent the lack of member benefits at USANext, that could be picked up by the media.

    I'm Sure You've Checked Them Out
    But www.stealthpacs.org has a lot of info on USANest and their past board members, consultants, lobbyists.

    From there is it is a quick step over too www.opensecrets.org to see which Senators & Representatives have received money from the people connected with USANext.

    This is dynamite stuff Bob!
    Who do you think will be the first blogger to win a pulitzer prize? I think journalists are going to be absolutely humiliated this year when it comes to breaking investigative stories.

    A Pulitzer for Bloggers
    I thought I was kidding and I ran across this, BlogCall Hosts First Conference Call for Progressive Investigative Bloggers.

    About time RWCM started paying attention to the real world, instead of parroting the Shrub's spokesholes.

    Jerome and Chris,

    That Blog Call story says you two can participate if you submit your credentials. Who did you get your credentials from? Do they really have credentials for bloggers???

    I don't know. Do you suppose a PC with a working internet connection counts as a "credential?"
