"Jeff Gannon" hangs up his hat
From his web site:
A Voice of the New Media
The voice goes silent.
Because of the attention being paid to me I find it is no longer possible to effectively be a reporter for Talon News. In consideration of the welfare of me and my family I have decided to return to private life.
Thank you to all those who supported me.
I, along with a lot of others in the blogosphere think there is more here than a sham journalist fronting for a right wing organ getting booted. The man had a pseudonym, a temp press pass and sat right up there in press briefings, and has alleged ties to male prostitution (he owns the domains Militaryescorts.com and Militaryescortsm4m.com). How did this happen? Take a surf over to DKos and see what else is being dug up on this shadowy mess.
I think it’s telling that threads that were up in Freeperland on the blogger takedown of this guy have been pulled. The Right is circling its wagons.
