What Jonathan Schwarz calls “the Lost Kristol Tapes” is a taped debate between William Kristol (the new NY Times columnist) and Daniel Ellsberg about the invasion of Iraq. The debate was on C-Span’s Washington Journal , of which I have fond memories; I watched it for years to get morning faces for my self-experimentation. Schwarz called Kristol’s comments “a double album of smarm, horrifying ignorance, and bald-faced deceit.”

The debate has been watched about 5000 times. Three days ago, just before Schwarz’s piece, it had been watched four times, three by Schwarz himself. My long self-experimentation article would have been read by almost no one had not Andrew Gelman blogged about it . Now it’s been downloaded thousands of times.

More blog power: here and here .

Addendum . Funny coincidence: The day after I posted this, the formerly-obscure Wikileaks hit the news for a super-charged version of the same thing. Wikileaks exposed Cayman Island tax shelters.
