I was just sort of thinking. Like, if you were totally paranoid, you know? You might start wondering about all these reporters from, like, the big liberal newspapers who were maybe sort of helping out Bush and Cheney and those guys when they were talking about mushroom clouds and stuff to get people all fired up to go over to Iraq and bust the place up.
I'm just saying.
Over at her place, Ariana Huffington pretty much paints The New York Times' Judith Miller as a full-blown aider and abettor of the Rovewellian campaign to sell the war. (And Arianna makes some darn compelling arguments in that regard.)
Blog favorite Capitola Banta points out this piece from The New York Times' Doug Jehl that casts murky aspersions on the role Walter Pincus of The Washington Post played in Plamegate. Jehl also conjures up journalistic names like Novak, Cooper, and Russert.
Another piece of the puzzle: conservative pundit William Safire seems to have to come out of retirement to bang the drum about the travesty of Judith Miller being in jail.
Funny how Plume/Rove/Niger/Traitorgate is become a story about reporters--for the most part, reporters who work for the "liberal" mainstream media.
Do you think maybe, behind some curtain, there's a short, bald, fat guy throwing switches and pulling strings to make all this happen?
Like I said, I'm just saying. But wouldn't it be something if, at the end of the day, the free press takes the fall for Traitorgate?
