Robert Novak was recently cleared to publish his account of the Plamegate affair and his account was published yesterdaty on July 12th.
In his account he reveals/confirms some new information. First is that he found out about Wilsons wife from a still unnamed source and that he actually got Plames name from Joe Wilsons entry in Who's Who. Rove confirmed what Novak had found as did Bill Harlow of the CIA.
Since the piece was published Novak has appeared on Fox with Brit Hume and on Hannity and Colmes.
During these appearances the following came out:
The unnamed source disclosed the information inadvertantly and it came up during a discussion of the Niger yellowcake situation.
Novak, himself doesn't believe that the disclosure was a conscious decision.
Nobody in the administration was pushing the information to Novak, now did anyone in the administration say anytyhing critical of Wilson.
Novak's discussion of Valerie Plame with Rove lasted about 20 seconds and consisted of Novak saying he heard Wilson's wife worked at the CIA and played a role in Wilson getting the mission and Rove replying "Oh, you know that, too?"
With all of these revelations you'd think the press could zero in on the three things tha treally seemed to stand out in this story
1. Novak's original source is still unnamed.
2. Valerie Plame was named in Joe Wilson's entry in Who's Who
3. Rove did not inform Novak of the story and his confirmation was nothing extraordinary.
The MSM however doesn't see the need to reveal most of this.
The Seattle Times
Each of these "newspapers" makes no reference to Who's Who. A couple of them continue with the canard that Rove or the White House was the source, and all of them focus on the involvement of Rove and continue under the incorrect assumption that Plames identity was a secret.
With papers like these it's a wonder that all of America doesn't vote for the Democrats. Although, I guess that is their ultimate goal...
