Sometimes this job is really frustrating. Unlike most other progressive sites on the internet, we make sure to verify and note sources for the facts we report. While researching the article on Alberto Gonzales, we kept finding mention of a $3,000 campaign contribution allegedly provided to Gonzales by Halliburton. But the only source we can find cited anywhere (or rather implied in one report) is Texans for Public Justice, whose website makes no mention of such a contribution. Weâ€™ll follow up with them at a more decent hour (it is midnight now and we want to post the story), but if anyone has an actual source for this elusive tidbit, please let us know.
In the meantime, would it be too much for us to ask our colleauges to please start citing sources? Thanks.
