Marcy Wheeler

citizen journalist

Marcy Wheeler is an American blogger who wrote in *The Next Hurrah* prior to contributing primarily to Jane Hamsher's *FireDogLake* (FDL), since early December 2007. She also contributes occasionally to Markos Moulitsas Zoniga's aggregated blog *Daily Kos*, Arianna Huffington's aggregrated news site and blog *The Huffington Post*, *Michigan Liberal*, as well as other online sites, and to the "Comment Is Free" section of the Guardian Online. During United States v. Libby, the trial of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, along with other regular press-accredited bloggers, Wheeler reported on the testimony live from the courtroom. In her accounts of the Libby trial, she describes her entries as "not a transcript." Nevertheless, such bloggers' eye-witness accounts served as sources of reliable information about the trial for their readers.
