CNN finally covers SWAT-tings, just 12 days after its own contributor was SWAT-ted
A week ago, FOX News covered SWAT-tings of conservative bloggers.
Yesterday, ABC News covered the story, too, after Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., weighed in on the matter.
This prompted several Twitter users to wonder if any other mainstream media outlets might get around to covering the story.

One of the networks that ignored the story, CNN, did so even though one of it’s own Contributors, Erick Erickson, was a victim of a SWAT-ting on May 27 (12 days ago).
Well, Twitchy is very pleased to report that CNN finally got around to covering the story today, just two weeks after blogger Patterico broke the story. Way to go, CNN!
