I’ve been away from the television and computer most of the day, although I gather the WaPo piece alleging that administration officials “outed” a covert CIA operative in a clumsy attempt to score a minor political point has excited the blogosphere–as well it should. What’s puzzling to me is that I’ve yet to see any follow up on the other major news sites, or even so much as a denial from the White House beyond what was in the original piece.
I know Sundays can be slow news days, but that would ordinarily mean that this would be all anyone would be talking about. Again, when the Lewinsky thing broke (with Matt Drudge leaking a piece Newsweek was keeping under wraps), it took off like wildfire. Which isn’t this causing more of a firestorm?
