Did a blogger receive preferential treatment?

Andrew M. Sullivan, the British author, editor, and political commentator, is one of the best-known figures in the new-media elite, and his blog, The Daily Dish, is among the most popular on the Web. But a federal judge says Sullivan did not deserve preferential treatment from prosecutors who dropped a marijuana possession charge after the journalist was recently caught smoking a joint on a federally owned beach on Cape Cod.

Andrew posts a response here.

Ann Althouse, a popular blogger in her own right, has had a few squabbles with Sullivan, and she wants to talk about the news report.
