Where's The Love For David Corn?

How important was his report on the 47% video to the outcome of this election?
I figure it was good for couple of points.
Way to go Dave!

29. Oh yeah.

He looked like the cat that swallowed the canary when the video was shown on MSNBC for the first time.

I've been following David since he wrote for The Nation several years ago.

15. I give it more credit than that . . .

The whole "47%" tape was a slow-acting poison pill that took a few weeks to kill Romney's chances. The coup de grāce was the phony Jeep ads.

Corn's work continues to be excellent. Springing the 47% video was huge, but one of his many contributions.

21. Are you kidding....

 

I have loved David for years!!!!!!!

I have a bumper sticker that says "I'm the 99%." I want to add the "And the 47%, too."

I really think that is what KILLED the RobMe campaign.

To be real, it was the woman/man who had the guts to video that speech by RobMe....that is who should be thanked. That person trusted David to get it out and keep her/his identity PRIVATE!!!!

I love whoever videoed his speech in Palm Beach. Bless her/him!!!!!

25. I think it was vital. It spoke directly to certain cohorts of Romney supporters who HAD to have

known that Willard was talking specifically about them.

That information was devastating.

28. Right Here!

I've been fan of David Corn forever. And I do applaud his efforts to get the truth for us. He has brought integrity and honesty and fairness to journalism. But then, in spite of the whiny-con naysayers, that's what progressive journalists do, as opposed to their "conservative" counterparts. Progressives like David Corn go for the truth, no matter that it might bring down a few liberal "sacred cows". Thanks, Mr. Corn. I look forward to more great writing and reporting from you.
