If any more proof were required that nobody reads Gristmill, it came this week. You may recall that almost a month ago, I discussed the merits of Barack Obama’s scheme to give the auto industry help with their healthcare costs in exchange for more research on fuel-efficient cars. Then last week, I posted Obama’s speech on energy independence — mere hours after he delivered it!
Days later, Kevin Drum discovered both the scheme and the speech via some shady fly-by-night "news agency" called Knight Ridder. "News agency"?! It’s the age of blogs, dude. Look it up.
