In second place we had a tie between: This weeks host, The Glittering Eye for “Civis Americanus Sum”an excellent piece that dealt with the American perception of world order and international law as opposed to the reality of realpolitik, as evidenced by the Russian invasion of Georgia.

And: Soccer Dad“Not up to the standards of the national enquirer *UPDATED*”, a fine exposition on the way the dinosaur media handled the Edwards scandal.

In the Non-Council category, the winner was Slate“The Columbia Journalism Review’s Division Over Dissent”.
