About that Rove indictment story

Rick in Duxbury passes along this essay on the Karl Rove indictment that wasn’t. A pretty good read, though I’m not sure anyone took seriously to begin with.

Meanwhile, Media Nation is on a secret mission this week. Blogging will be light at best.

    Talk about ruining a brand.I wonder if there have been any studies about how credibility of a news outlet is built and destroyed. Reporters will get things wrong, and that can end their careers. But how many times does a media outlet get to be wrong and still command any audience at all?

    It says: Be careful in Iran. Food’s supposed to be good, tough.Or something like that.

    It’s no secret–I can hear the tunnelling sounds under my house even as I type. It won’t be long now. Enver Hoxha’s troglodytes scratching away. The canned artichoke hearts, the changing from Smokey the Bear to Smokey Bear…as if we wouldn’t notice. You think I don’t know what’s going on? Secret, bah!In Iran when you get sick of kebab and rice, you can have chicken and rice instead. And as a foreigner, you get to eat in the separate room where the women eat.

    Truthout offered a follow-up saying, yes, he was indicted! We’re just the only people in the world that know this secret.At the end:Joe Lauria and The Washington Post’s Attacks on Jason LeopoldWe are well aware of the Lauria article and the series of attacks The Washington Post has launched against Jason Leopold and Truthout. As always, we will carefully consider all information and then publish a thoughtful response. In this case, we will publish our response on Wednesday, June 21, at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time. Stay tuned.

    Wow. TruthOut sez: “The Rove indictment story is way beyond — in terms of complexity — any other story we have ever covered.” I always thought whether someone was indicted or not was a reasonably binary situation.
