FireDogLake founder Jane Hamsher explains that House Minority Whip Eric Cantor is confused about where the fifty billion dollar rescue for homeowners in trouble with their mortgages is coming from.

Jane — whose blog FireDogLake David Shuster rightly calls "an influential voice on the net" — points out that GOP support has sagged throughout the recovery program’s legislative path, while Nancy Pelosi’s poll numbers have continued to improve since the beginning of the year.

Jane suggests that process stories are easier to cover than substance stories, although she is unwilling to join Shuster in accusing the media of being lazy. At least not Shuster, who we all got to see learn how the blogs cover important stories at the Libby trial.
