Media Re: Connelly’s Wrong, etc…

First of all, it was a little weird that the dailies hadn’t done anything on the story that a high-profile challenger for a Seattle City Council seat had ties to an extremist group.
And so it’s even weirder that the only thing that shows up after Erica’s coverage is this convoluted rant from the P-I’s Joel Connelly attacking Erica. Sheesh. Maybe the P-I should cover the story before letting Connelly out of the attic.
Second, I want to repeat one of Erica’s points about Connelly’s asinine attempt: Connelly attacks me for not talking to Rep. Dave Reichert about his religion, but then attacks us for talking to Burgess about his religion. That’s just weird, Joel.
P.S. to Connelly: When I called you to see if you had talked to Reichert before you defended his religious views, you admitted that you hadn’t. You were “planning to,” you said. You also, coincidentally, hadn’t talked to me before calling me a bigot. So, question: Have you talked to Reichert yet?
