This is where the press corps draws the line?
But I just want to step back a second to ask... they weren't this mad over Iraq intel? ...the years of over rosy reports on Iraq? ..."we do not torture"? ...Rove and Libby had nothing to do with the outing of Valerie Plame?...when it was revealed that the Pentagon was, in effect, paying former generals to lie to them?
No. The cold answer is that they weren't that mad over the Bush administration's lying. Why? Because the Bush press office made an immense effort to make thepress corps' day to day jobs easier.
And that's what their current whinging is about. They don't care whether the information they're given is true, good, or a violation of Federal laws. Their anger comes over an extra step in filing.
It says alot, doesn't it?
