I just heard former Time magazine White House correspondent John Dickerson explain on Franken’s show that Traitor Karl’s efforts to smear Joe Wilson by outing his wife fell far short of some great Rovian media campaign because he only contacted three reports (Novak, Cooper and Miller). Yet in Septmeber 2003 the Washington Post reported that “senior administration officials” had contacted six reporters in the first round of calls, and we know there was at least one more round in which Rove contacted Tweety and Rove or another official contacted Mrs. Allan Greenspan and two-dozen other reporters.
To add stupidity to imbecillity, Al’s sidekick Katherine Lanpher claimed that Rove did not know Plame was covert, this despite the fact that it has been learned that the State Department memo circulated throughout the assministration in July 2003, from which it is suspected Rove learned of Ms. Plames identity, “made clear that information identifying an agent and her role in her husband’s intelligence-gathering mission was sensitive and shouldn’t be shared.”
Goddammit, liberal media! If you can’t take the time to educate yourself on this case then shut the fuck up.
