Quick, someone tell me what this photo means?? Is this Craig's List before there was Craig's List? (photo by Cragin Spring/Flickr)
Top story: Hmmm, the Sun-Times reported that Congressman Luis Gutierrez secured a condo with the help of Tony Rezko. Today, Politico ran this article: "Luis Gutierrez: Sun-Times's Rezko story 'false'". The congressman contests the article's assertion that Rezko delivered upgrades to his place. The Sun-Times managing editor stands by the article. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. If it does indeed pan out that Luis Gutierrez did accept this from Rezko and he lied to Politico, what is the fallout? Any? Are we in a world now where politicians (heck, and everyone else) can lie to the media without consequence? And if he isn't lying, what consequence (if any) is there for the media getting it wrong?
B story: Last night, I was up working on the site and my Tweet Deck kept alerting me to a flurry of my friends tweeting Conan O'Brien updates. At the risk of sounding out-of-touch, might I tell my friends to cool it?
