Colin Finnerty, one of the three Duke lacrosse players declared innocent by the North Carolina attorney general today, has spoken publicly at a press conference, and among the many people he praised was blogger K.C. Johnson, "for exposing the truth." The other Duke defendants, Reade Seligmann and David Evans, have also praised Johnson.

As a blogger I'm always hesitant to go too far in praising other bloggers (blog triumphalism can be annoying), but there is absolutely no doubt that Johnson's blog, Durham-in-Wonderland, was the single best source of information about what happened in that house in March of 2006 and what has happened with the case since.

Johnson isn't really a "sports blogger" the way we are here at FanHouse. But what he's done is the most important work anyone has ever done in blogging about sports. If bloggers could get Pulitzer Prizes, Johnson would.
