This is a fantastic summary of the current situation on Wall Street. If you find yourself scratching your head about what is going on and how did we get where we are, this article will help you understand.
This is a great read. It's well sourced, and is really interesting. It presents historical context, gives interesting details, and even goes so far as to report on anonymous sources confirming allegations made by others in the story. I totally trust this article.
It's opinion, and the author doesn't cite that many sources. He does seem to know what he's talking about, and makes some very valid points about the '316 patent and Microsoft's and Google's strange behavior.
All in all, a fascinating article to read.
This is not what I would consider great investigative journalism. The story does not (indeed, cannot) reveal the name of the CIA operative, so some trustworthiness is lost right from the start. A named "CIA spokesman" is quoted saying the same things that CIA spokespeople often say, that the CIA doesn't falsify or suppress intelligence.
At the end of the article, I'm left wondering whether I should beleve this unnamed ex-CIA person or not. Clearly he has an axe to grind; he no longer works for the CIA.
I'm about as liberal as they come, but even I have a problem taking this entire story at face value. This isn't investigative journalism. This is just reporting what the guy's lawyer said, and what the CIA spokesman says.
