Quoting from Kos: "In May of 2004, Bruce Eberle, Bobby's brother, folded his Millionsof Americans.com conservative web site into GOPUSA. Bruce is CEO of Virginia-based Eberle Communications, a vast fundraising/direct mail/PR powerhouse that boasts such clients as Ronald Reagan (well, when he was alive, I assume ... although his death was actually great PR too), Operation Rescue, Ollie North and Paula Jones, and which illegally sold fund-raising lists to Ashcroft during his Missouri Senate run. Despite Bobby Eberle's denials to Media Matters, Talon News and GOPUSA are clearly one practical entity; his GOPUSA email address is listed as the administrative contact for Talon, and the two groups share a server and listserve."
* Gannon has White House press credentials, but, according to the National Journal, "the nonpartisan U.S. Senate Daily Press Gallery has rejected Gannon's repeated requests for congressional press credentials because of TalonNews' financial ties to GOPUSA."
* As recorded in his GOPUSA bio, "Gannon"'s sole journalistic credential (he also has a B.S. in Education from "the Pennsylvania State University system") is apparently his graduation from the "Leadership Institute Broadcast School of Journalism." Googling same didn't return any responses that weren't connected to "Gannon." However, the Leadership Institute does run a two-day, $50 "Broadcast Journalism School", "for conservatives who want a career in journalism."
o The Leadership Institute is unabashedly partisan -- and is yet a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, which are required to be nonpartisan by law. The president of the Leadership Institute is Morton C. Blackwell, who is on the Executive Committee of the RNC, was a Reagan White House aide, and whose writings include "Anti-PAC Agitation is a Liberal Power Grab" and "Why Jesse Helm's (sic) is the Country's Favorite Conservative Senator."
* Gannon's Talon News bio -- and the bios of other Talon News associates -- have disappeared from the Talon website.
* Gannon's personal website describes him as "A conservative journalist embedded with the liberal Washington press corps."
* Perhaps most importantly, in an October 2003 interview with Ambassador Joseph Wilson, Gannon referred to an internal State Department memo that named Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, as a covert CIA officer and suggested she was behind Wilson's selection for a CIA mission to Niger. (The CIA, according to the Washington Post, says this is wrong.) The Post cited him (according to Kos -- I haven't found a WaPo article explicitly saying this) as having the only access to that memo. (However, Gannon's question to Wilson assumes knowledge that had only been hinted at up until that point by Novak et al.) Talon News says that Gannon is on the subpoena list in the Plame investigation.

There's lots more journalism being committed over at dKos -- go here for the big roundup of everything. Media Matters is also on top of it.
