Malkin froths and fumes:
They can buy ink by the barrel, but we can fight back now with bandwidth by the terrabyte. I’m getting inundated with furious readers’ letters to the Times, most of which the editors won’t bother to read or publish–since they’re not in, you know, the “public (Pulitzer) interest.” So I’m reprinting a representative sample here and I’ll keep adding to it. Don’t forget that it’s both the NYTimes and the LATimes that blew off security concerns in favor of blowing the cover of the terrorist finance tracking program.

Ahem. Aren’t we forgetting someone?
The White House and Treasury Department issued statements about the secret subpoenas after The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times posted stories about the program on their Web sites.
I must have Paul Gigot’s phone number around here somewhere….
Meanwhile her sidekick, Duh Boy chimes in:
The Timesâ€™ they are a-hanginâ€™ together. Both the NY and the LA Times are flogging the Swift story. Both Times have published this leak that helps terrorists dodge the law â€œin the public interest.â€ By which they actually mean, in their own and in the terroristsâ€™ interest. The public gains nothing from the disclosure of this program other than increased political acrimony and increase anxiety over the rising possibility of losing this war thanks to the treasonous Times. Both of them.
Too bad about the increased “anxiety” there, Bryan. Maybe Goldstein will share some of his good shit…
