Finally Somebody Said It

Is the Berger theft "distracting" us from the 9-11 report?

Instapundit says that maybe the media are using the 9-11 report to "distract" us from the Berger theft.

More and more, Lawrence O'Donnell seems right. The "timing" of this leak is actually very helpful to liberals -- it's released right before a major report the media has been salivating to cover (that is, when they assumed it would badly damage Bush).

The timing of the leak allowed one day of coverage before the story would get lost in the 9-11 Commission reporting and then the frantic coverage of the Democratic convention.

If Bush-forces had leaked this-- why wouldn't they leak it either closer to the election, or during the famous August downtime known as "the silly season," when it's far, far easier to get "minor" stories covered on the front pages?
