Will MSM & Democrats support this leak probe?
Now that there is an official probe into the leak of the NSA eavesdropping program , approved by Bush post 9/11, it will be interesting to see the reaction of the press and hard left Democrats. The press will probably not like how the investigation will treat those at the NYTimes who received the leaked information. The usual Democrat's (like the Three Stooges in the post below) will likely show their typical liberal hypocrisy and denounce this investigation as an effort by the White House to deflect the issue of whether the NSA program was illegal. But of course they supported the Plame leak probe with enthusiasm!
Update 1, check the NYTimes' own article on this probe....sure enough the hypocrisy begins with the Times saying "Privacy advocates said today that the leak investigation should be set aside, at least for now, in favor of an investigation of the warrantless eavesdropping itself." Of course the privacy advocates they're talking about are the leftist ACLU and Electronic Privacy Information Center both of which are worried more about protecting terrorists and promoting anti-Bush projects than they are about civil liberties.
Update 2, Brent Baker at NewsBusters has a post on a biased piece done by ABC on the issue. Just goes to show you the little things you can do (like the choice of an a supposed expert, a piece of text on the TV screen, or something left out) to bias a story.
