DaTechguy And Stacy McCain: The New Huntley And Brinkley?

15 May 2010 @ 12:16

When the Federales conducted their raids in New England this week in connection with the Times Square Bomber case, DaTechguy leapt into action and heading to the main scene of activity in Watertown, Massachusetts.  What followed was a fine job of reportage that included phone reports to Stacy McCain, videos, after-reports at his own site, and a very thoughtful piece on the Watertown neighborhood where the chief raid took place.

If you haven’t read them, please do and here’s an aggregation…

DaTechguy:

He gets word of the raids.

Photos from Watertown.

A whole bunch of video interviews and b-roll.

The Lord working in mysterious ways for DTG.

-A wonderful and reflective piece on the people of the Watertown neighborhood where the raids took place.  From the introduction:

The neighborhood had changed over the years.

Decades ago it was an Italian neighborhood. Everybody knew everyone else. Neighbors knew each other and their families. A lady talked to me about the house at 39 Waverly ave. Her sister in law had once owned it and decades ago she had babysat in the house for family.

Today it was a neighborhood of absentee landlords. A mixed neighborhood of many different ethnic types. People pretty much kept to themselves. In the Elderly public housing the employees came and went never taking any note of the house next door. Nor did the tenants who lived in the 162 units inside. People came and went without a hello or even a nod to acknowledge the other.

It was much the same as it was in many neighborhoods all across the state and country. People remaining in their houses, children spending their time on the video games. It was not unusual, in fact even as it changed it remained just an average neighborhood.

Please do take the time to read the rest.

A job well done, Pete.

Stacy McCain:

Live blogging of the event, supplemented with DaTechguy’s phone reports.

Analysis by Stacy and he publishes Fizzle in the Snizzle…er…Faisal Shahzad’s immigration history.

A full-report on the men arrested, their possible motives, and other important details.  As a bonus, Stacy gives us the video of the Attorney General and General Clown of the United States refusing to use the phrase ‘radical Islam’.

A follow-up report.

I’d say ‘well done, Stacy’ except for the fact that this is what a reporter is supposed to do without even thinking.  This is a reporter’s job.  Stacy’s part of a dying breed.

This is the Blogosphere functioning at it’s best.

This is what the Leftists is Washington want to snuff-out.

    Don’t you mean to say that Huntley & Brinkley are just the old version of DaTechguy And Stacy McCain?

      That’s another way of looking at it.
