Captain's Quarters and AdScam

If you haven't seen it, check out Captain's Quarters' coverage of the AdScam scandal in Canada involving more than a hundred million dollars in kickbacks to the Liberal Party. CQ is important in this story because a Canadian judge has issued a court order forbidding any publication of the explosive testimony for fears that if the information gets out it will make it harder for the trial of one of the participants to be fair. Ed Morrissey lives in the US, so the ban doesn't apply to him, but Canadian websites, TV, and other news sources are not allowed to link to or mention the story or CQ.

MSM coverage by Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post can be found here.
