Did I just hear on RT there have been 400 journalists working for ten months in

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

many different foreign countries as well as the U.S.?

How is McClatchy in control of all of the info, as they have also reported? Do all 400 work for them? Wow! You just can't 'off' 400 reporters when things get hot.

1. My husband worked for Knight-Ridder, most of which was bought by McClatchy.

You may recall that it was Knight-Ridder reporters who uncovered Cheney cooking the intel books on Iraq, and the Downing Street Memos.

I think it is safe to say McClatchy's best have been taking the lead and are working on this, but, it would be in partnership with reporters from other countries' cooperating news organizations.

5. No, it's a consortium of many papers.

 

The actual leak was to Sueddeutsche Zeitung, Munich, Germany.
