I’m not the only one puzzled by the low-key media treatment of the Wilson/Plame story: Steven Taylor notes than not even NPR is paying it much attention. Owing to waking up before 5 AM for no particular reason, I listened to the entire Morning Edition program today and also don’t recall it being mentioned.
Steven also notes that WaPo has two follow-ups today. As I noted in the comments section of a previous post, WaPo got onto the “big time media” map with Watergate by doing exactly this: Flogging a scandal that everyone else was largely ignoring. I don’t yet know whether this is the biggest presidential scandal since Watergate or merely a case of the paper that broke the story furiously trying to make more of it than meets the eye.
