Here's one scoop we never thought we'd live to hear: "Journalists Call on Newsman to Disclose Confidential Sources." To understand this sudden pang of press conscience, it helps to know that the journalist in question is columnist Robert Novak.

At issue is his July 14 column explaining why the Bush Administration would entrust an investigation into the alleged Iraqi attempt to buy uranium yellowcake from Niger to Joe Wilson--a high-ranking National Security Council member from the Clinton years. The answer Mr. Novak reported receiving from Administration sources was that Mr. Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, worked at the CIA and had put her husband forward for the job.

Ask yourself this: Have you ever seen a man who enjoyed the alleged destruction of his wife's career as much as Joe Wilson? He has speculated on which movie star should play his wife and called for Karl Rove to be "frog-marched out of the White House in handcuffs." As for Ms. Plame, far from heading back underground, she happily posed for the January issue of Vanity Fair.

There, now that sums it up nicely!
