Declan McCullagh is pretty much universally respected in the online journalism space, but if you ask me, he’s a bad journalist. You don’t have to read many articles of his to see that his political agenda colors every article that he writes. I’d link to Agre’s report on McCullagh’s most recent article, but the RRE archive seems to be down. Suffice it to say that for Declan to again twist the knife on this issue without accepting a big part of the responsibility for the constant distortions of it is disingenuous and unprofessional.
