Have you noticed:
1. The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal ran the finance-tracking story on the same day and in the same spot in their respective papers – upper right-hand column.
2. Only the New York Times is getting heat.
3. The NYT has been out there defending itself. The WSJ has said not a word – it’s been hiding under its desk.
I’m afraid I’m underwhelmed by this story. The program seems fine enough (unlike illegal wiretapping and torture); I can’t believe that key terrorists were unaware their finances might be watched and frozen until the NYT and WSJ told them; and, er, Rove needed a third week of p.r. offensive. After Zarqawi Week and "Cut and Run" Week, we are now almost through "Kill Keller" Week. He says jump. The blogosphere has sadly learned to ask: how high?
