Journalist in the jury room : Scooter Libby juror blogs details

Reporters in the jury room?

Looks to be the case with Juror No. 9 in the Scooter Libby trial, Denis Collins, who tells all at his Huffington Post blog, Inside the Jury Room.

‘Blogs are the future, right?’ he explained to reporters, including Maureen Dowd of the New York Times. When reporters asked for details, Collins told reporters “he’d already posted his diary of adventures in federal court — right down to our incestuous Catholic past, which came up in the voir dire, when he also mentioned living across the alley from Tim Russert, working at The Post for Bob Woodward, and his nonfiction book about spying and the CIA.”

We’re not talking brief blog posts here. We’re talking seven pages of detail.

This is an amazing new world of citizen journalism.
