Daily Kos :: Plame Leaked by Fake News Source? Part VI

Daily Kos :: Political Analysis and other daily rants on the state of the nation.: "White House-credentialed fake news reporter 'Jeff Gannon' from fake news agency 'Talon News' was cited by the Washington Post as having the only access to an internal CIA memo that named Joseph Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, as a covert CIA agent. Gannon, in a question posed to Wilson in an October 2003 interview, referred to the memo (to which no other news outlet had access, according to the Post). Gannon subsequently has been subpoenaed by the federal grand jury looking into the Plame outing.

These facts have led the Kos community to research the following questions:

1. Who/what is Talon News?
2. Who/what is Jeff Gannon and how did he get credentialed for the White House?
3. How is this 'reporter' and 'news agency' being used to disseminate information?
4. What exactly is the relationship between all the various outlets/GOP groups/individuals?
5. What does all this information have to do with the Plame leak?
