Media Too Fixated On Karl Rove's "Treason" To Report On, You Know, Actual Treason

Not much MSM interest in the life sentence for the scholar of terrorism who treasonously incited others to commit terrorism against America.

I'm sure David Gregory is working on a big story about it, though.

I've never been so sure of anything in my life.

Because, you know, I'm an optimist. And also: a diagnosed mental retard.


Lorie Byrd Is Almost On F'n' Fire: She'd take Democrats' and the media's newfound concerns about security leaks had the Democrats themselves not leaked so much confidential information in the past, while the media yawned.

David Frum Weighs In: Howie Kurtz poses a hypoethetical: What would the media reaction be had been had a Democrat leaked confidential information to damage a poltical enemy?

Frum notes we already know the answer, because Linda Tripp's confidential Pentagon files were released to impugn her -- and that was definitely a crime, not maybe-sorta-kinda a crime, as is the case in l'affaire Plame -- and the media and the permanent government of bureaucratic Washington yawned.

I don't remember a special prosecutor being appointed.
