USA --(Ammoland.com)- My hometown paper, the Akron Beacon Journal, just weighed in on the Inspector General’s “Fast and Furious” report with expected media spin. Here’s my response:

Typical Beacon Journal regressive apologia. You people haven’t done one bit of original reporting on this story and now weigh in like you’re some kind of authorities. “No evidence” hardly means “exonerated,” it means the White House has blocked efforts to obtain it.

How many whistleblowers have trusted you and become sources, giving you exclusive information and documentation to validate it? Guess who first used the term “pad statistics” in regards to Gunwalker? Who brought the whistleblowers to the attention of Sen. Grassley and then pressured Darrell Issa to get involved? Who did Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News turn to when she wanted to learn about this story? Who has filed and published results of FOIAs, steered committee investigators to witnesses, obtained exclusive interviews with key players (including the CI at the heart of “Operation Wide Receiver”), made public internal emails, been referenced in high-level discussions between ATF management and their Chief Counsel’s office…? Who first brought details of Fast and Furious to the attention of everybody, including the nexus to the death of a Border Patrol Agent?

What? It was nobody in “official media”?

You want proof?

You want to see recent evidence of corroboration?

Why is it that “just a blogger” in Hudson, part of your circulation area, and another in Pinson, AL, have been able to consistently scoop all you “professionals” from the very beginning on this, having their work corroborated time and again, and continue to be the ones to uncover new dimensions while you “Authorized Journalists” sit back and pontificate based on NY Times and Washington Post talking points?

Congratulations on your “Food Coverage” award.
