Romney Dirty Tricks, Novak’s Sloppy Reporting
The Romney campaign has been up to some dirty tricks, Bob Novak reports:
Published reports that Fred Thompson soon will withdraw from the Republican presidential contest and endorse Sen. John McCain have been traced in part to Mitt Romney’s campaign, trying to stir up strife between McCain and Thompson.
The above, it should be noted, is the entirety of Novak’s report. While it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if it were true, there’s rather a lot missing:
- Traced by whom?
- In part? What’s the rest of the story?
- Who is/are Novak’s source(s) and what is his/her/their agenda?
