KSTP breaks its DonorGate embargo!

Saturday morning, I noted KSTP-TV was only major-media local outlet that hadn’t covered DonorGate.

Honor compels me to note they broke their self-imposed embargo Saturday night, after a day’s sparring between a professionally outraged Norm Coleman, a slash-and-burn Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and a somewhat exasperated Al Franken.

Here’s KSTP’s report:

The story embraces the “wife attack” angle a bit too much for my taste, and includes too little of Franken’s denial too late, but these are quibbles, not journalistic malfeasance.

Glad Stan Hubbard’s station finally recognized this as a legitimate story.
