ANOTHER Fake White House Directed "Journalist" Exposed

The Power of the New Media, Jeff Gannon Dispatched Into Irrelevancy:

"The new media stood up recently when a fellow calling himself Jeff Gannon started popping up at White House press conferences. Gannon was often called on by Scott McClellan, or even Bush, especially when the press conference was not going well. Gannon would serve up the most biased, partisan, ridiculous questions imaginable. Bloggers and new media took notice and started digging. Turns out that Jeff Gannon was not a journalist, he was just playing one for the administration. He was representing a news agency that was also fake. Talon News, it turns out was just a front for an organization called GOPUSA. So, we have a fake journalist, working for a fake news agency, allowed into every White House press briefing for the apparent sole purpose of giving Bush or his representative a breather during press conferences.
