    I have to admit I don't like Mr. Shields all that much. I can handle a liberal bias, but his is extreme, and he often makes mistakes as a result (as you point out). I'm not sure if this is a recent thing for him or not. I've seen formerly respectable journalists go off the deep end before, e.g. Michael Kinsley.

    As for there being no proof that Scooter Libby was acting on the behest of Dick Cheney, let's get real. Do you think Libby did this on his own volition? It wouldn't take much for me to get past reasonable doubt.

      No, he's been like that a long time. I look forward to when Bill Kristol is on instead of David Brooks, because Kristol doesn't let him get away with it.

      What do you mean "acting"? He was talking to reporters about Wilson at the behest of Cheney, surely. Trying to discredit Wilson, at the behest of Cheney, surely. And Wilson deserved to be discredited, because Wilson was wrong.

      But I see no evidence that Libby attempted to discredit Wilson by revealing Plame's identity, so why would I assume that Cheney

      • In the indictment against Libby, he says Libby learned about Wilson's wife from a VP assistant for public affairs...
        And where did the VP's assistant learn it from?
