McConnell: NYT monopoly is over

In an interview Monday with BuzzFeed, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Kentucky) praised the proliferation of online media and declared the days of media dominance by left-leaning newspapers over.


A BuzzFeed report claims Eric Edelman, a Romney campaign adviser who criticized the White House today for leaking classified national-security information, was “implicated” in the Justice Department’s 2005 perjury indictment of Lewis “Scooter” Libby as the person who “originally suggested the idea to Libby to start leaking information about Joe Wilson’s trip to Niger.”
