Media Attention Deficit Disorder

Mr. Harris points out this interesting bit of data:

Outlet.........Wilson Before....Wilson After
CBS.......................30...............0
NBC.......................40...............1
ABC.......................18...............1
Washington Post......96...............2
New York Times......70...............3
Los Angeles Times...48...............2

Before is before we found out Joe Wilson lied through his teeth.
Note that, half of his appearances in the Post and LA Times were the op-eds he wrote to justify himself and blame the fact that more or less everything he said last year turned out to be a lie on a "Republican smear campaign."
