What is striking here is they just began coverage which we initiated on December 27, 2008, followed up on January 4th, and had in-depth on-site coverage on February 16th. Frankly, the latter blog is far more detailed that what 60 Minutes provided.
So by my calculations, our team scooped 60 Minutes by not weeks but by MONTHS, and we did (and continue to do) a better job reporting things like this.
We are out there watching the trends, making predictions and putting things into a perspective that is difficult for more conventional media to match, either with substance or with timeliness.
A bunch of attaboys go out to Kurt and the whole team.
