A QUESTION: The Rick Bragg story, conveniently enough, came out on Memorial Day Friday, one of the deadest news slots of the year. (As Kaus notes, it was even a vacation day for Romenesko!)

But was this really that smart? All it means is that the blogosphere — especially the Raines-unfriendly part occupied by Kaus and Sullivan — has had all weekend to chew on the story. I wonder if on Tuesday, when people come back to the office, they’ll scroll through those posts and it’ll set the tone, making things worse for Raines rather than better?
