Tonight on The News Hour with Jim Lehrer on PBS, Shields and Brooks were asked about McClellan's statement "Bush may have been instrumental" in outing Valerie Plame. As one, they down-played the importance of the issue. They ignored the facts that Libby and Cheney certainly were involved and, instead, focused on the idea that Bush "may have" been.
Essentially, they looked only at the matter as it will affect the next election and Brooks wrapped up his statement with the words, "This election isn't about Bush."
Then, both Washington Week and The McLaughlin Group said nothing about the book.
Once again, the media are ignoring the fact that our "leaders" broke the law with impunity--and, from the look of things--with immunity, as well.
