  News sources and the power of the mass media
Techdirt hits paydirt: Joe Trippi's ETcon speech on Monday about Dean's campaign has just been seen to be blatantly misrepresented by Reuters, who claim he said the internet hobbled the campaign.

As Howard Rheingold suggests on his smartmobs blog today, I wonder why the framing? The ahistorical and out of context quoting in the article is what the news editors will consciously or unconsciously have decided is their truth. Unless it was on purpose. More grist for my forthcoming paper on media practices.
