It was like pulling teeth to get information yesterday…a lot of senators were frustrated. And you pick up major newspapers in the country and you find details not shared with you.Senator Lindsey Graham • Voicing frustration within the Senate GOP caucus that the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal received more detailed briefing on the Libya attacks than did congress. Senator Bob Corker called it “the most useless, worthless briefing I have attended in a long time,” and John McCain accused the Obama administration of holding the Senate in “disdain.” The closed-door briefing in question presumably also included Senate Democrats, but none have made hay about it in the way Senate GOPers have.

» SFB says: It doesn’t count third-party app usage, either. So I agree with you on that. I’ll link to this conversation on the post. As far as desktop goes, I think that it’s a more accurate gauge of the other services than Twitter. Which is actually pretty bad for G+, as most people use that through the Web site (though it does have a mobile presence) and third-party apps are still pretty much nonexistent. — Ernie @ SFB
