Notice anything missing? Something along the lines of actual proof that Rove did anything aside from simply being interviewed by Matt Cooper for a story?
Yeah, that’s it. Unless, that is, being interviewed by the media has suddenly become a crime.
In order for us to buy into what Lawrence O’Donnell is selling we must do two things:
- Believe that O’Donnell has more evidence available to him that what he’s making public now.
- Believe that Time/Newsweek sat on the fact that Rove was the Plame through all the controversy over this issue that preceeded the election, bypassing in the process some heavy duty magazine sales/ratings and the chance to derail a second Bush presidency.
Honestly, I don’t see how anyone with any common sense could believe either.
