Media Squabble Alert

If you like this sort of thing, Salon and MSNBC are having a tiff.

Alex Seitz-Ward wrote a story yesterday calling out the media for falling for the IRS scandal.  I quoted from the story on this blog.

Last night, Lawrence O’Donnell did a long “Rewrite” on his MSNBC show, faulting Seitz-Ward for not crediting O’Donnell with recognizing the phoniness of the scandal early on and in 24 (O’Donnell kept emphasizing that 24) segments on his show.

Now Alex Pareene has a post up at Salon slamming O’Donnell  — “Lawrence O’Donnell outraged to read story that isn’t about him.”

I’m sure we’ll be hearing from O’Donnell this evening.
