Pro-Bush media? Whatever.
Well, well, well. For those out there who have the courage to suggest that the media hasn't been hard enough on the Bush administration, I suggest you take a gander at this piece about the silly Plame affair. Even after it suggests that it all started from gossip, it still manages to attack the Bush administration for things the article itself suggests never happened.
There is no evidence that the Bush administration engaged in a campaign to out a CIA agent who, by the way, probably wasn't even covert to begin with. Yet it still doesn't stop the media from perpetuating a myth. Instead of apologizing for all their attacks on the Bush administration on this matter, the media prefers to keep milking it for all its worth.
Pro-Bush media? Who in the world are you trying to kid?
UPDATE (Mon. Aug. 28, 9:16 pm): The more I read about this case, the more I think that defence lawyers in any upcoming trial surrounding this affair would love the opportunity to actually put Patrick Fitzgerald on trial as a defence strategy. For that matter, I wouldn't be surprised if Team Conrad Black decided to do the same in his trial, too. For a guy who's supposed to be today's version of Eliot Ness, Fitzgerald sure seems capable of pulling a few boners or two in some important and high profile investigations.
