I first wrote about the Trophy in October, suggesting that the weapon system was being promoted online by tech-savvy supporters and that the Army would not hear the end of the story that was dug up by NBC
muckraker investigative reporter Lisa Myers.
It was back in the news in January.
And now, Danger Room is reporting that it is back in the news again.
Attention PAOs — this is a prime example of the connectivity between the blogosphere and the mainstream media in a Web 2.0 world. Lisa Myers’ story could have been a one shot deal. It should have been. The subsequent stories really didn’t add any news.
But online conversation and buzz kept the story churning over the past 8 months.
And it’s back to bite the Army in the behind again.
