Outrage After CNN Uses Journal of Ambassador Christopher Stevens as News Source

Anderson Cooper's initial mention of Ambassador Stevens' worries about al Qaeda can be seen at the link.

Some of the source material for that reporting came from the ambassador's personal journal, and there's a backlash, at the Wall Street Journal, "Family Protests CNN's Use of Slain Envoy's Journal." (Via Lonely Conservative and Memeorandum.)

But see Robert Stacy McCain, "Classic: State Department Attacks CNN for Reporting Inconvenient Facts on Libya." Read it all at the link. Robert defends CNN's reporting, as the information in the journal held "worldwide significance."
