Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Remember that David Corn co-wrote the book that "Hubris" is based on! He deserves

some attention, too. He co-wrote it with Michael Isakoff. I saw tweety interviewing both Rachel and David about this documentary and of course, he directed almost all of his questioning to Rachel. He is notorious for interrupting and downplaying David Corn. Many of you on DU have noticed and commented on it.

David also broke the "47%" story about Romney which was a real game changer in the recent election. He's a great journalist. He never really got credit for that either.

This is not meant to slam Rachel, but her name is mentioned in every thread and on-air promo when she is the narrator. I never hear anything about David or Michael, for that matter.

3. It's on my list, too, although

I'm afraid that neither the documentary nor the book will be good for my blood pressure.

5. Tweety Had Corn On Hardball Today...

...along with Isakoff and gave David props for writing the original book, participating with this special and his Polk award for the 47% tape.

David has always been a solid and quality reporter...and long overdue the accolades...

Cheers...

6. Rachel deserves credit for bringing it to the airwaves and she used her time slot for it.

Otherwise, it wouldn't have left the book shelf and those who never read it wouldn't be exposed to it. I saw her give David Corn credit for it as well as Isikoff on some of the promos that I saw.

7. Corn was just announced as a Polk Award recipient.

His story breaking the 47% remarks of Romney won David the prestigious recognition. David has been a beacon for investigative journalism.
