Josh Marshall of TPM Says His Readers Recommend Looming Tower and 9/11 Commission Report!!!

August 20, Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo posted a blog asking readers to recommend "a good factually-grounded narrative history of the [9/11] attacks, their background, execution and probably something on the aftermath as well." As TPM has done some decent muckraking and investigative reporting, has a progressive slant and has attracted a following of basically intelligent people concerned about political corruption and abuse of power, I was surprised to see that, according to Marshall, the majority of his readers recommended the limited hangouts/mis-disinfo The Looming Tower by Lawrence Wright and the 9/11 Commission Report- but that's what he said. - loose nuke

Did you know that Adam Lambert has a bulge in his crotch? Were you aware that the world's shortest man recently died? Are you informed enough to know that Jessica Simpson says men are "undressing her with their eyes"?

Sorry, let me rephrase all that: Do you give a shit about any of that retarded "news"? I sure as hell don't, but these were among the many absurd storys I found on the front page of a tabloid called the Huffington Post.
