Kurtz on the Wal-Mart "Scandal": Howie takes a pretty balanced look at Barbaro's piece and finds--like the rest of us--that the piece provokes nothing stronger than a shrug of the shoulders.

One interesting note, from Brian Pickrell of Iowa Voice, on the stuff he was accused of lifting uncredited from the Wal-Mart e-mail and republishing has his own: it was in a "quote box." So while it would have been nice to have him tell readers where it came from, it was pretty clear he was not trying to pass it off as his own thought. Maybe Barbaro didn't know what a quote box was or signified.
