Huffinton: Russert in Plamegate Huffinton: Russert in Plamegate

Much of what is in huffingtonpost.com is garbage. But there are a surprising number of actually interesting articles. Today, Arianna, in a post entitled: "Russert Watch: Let Me Count the Ways", points out the absurdity of Tim Russert in this scandal. For example, on July 17, 2005, he did an entire Meet the Press on Plamegate with Matt Cooper, Ken Mehlman, John Podesta, Bob Woodward, and others. He makes no reference whatsoever to his involvement in the affair. Yet, there is some evidence that Libby got his information on Wilson and Plame from Russert. In other words, you have one of the central figures in the entire scandal playing disinterested journalist as he interviews a bunch of people involved, many to a lesser degree than he is himself.
