I thought you would probably enjoy this news article...
Flipping a coin, to bump or not to bump?
He was told NOT to print her name and did so anyway.
He ought to be indicted!
Ooops. His suggestion tht it was administration officials is going to be NOT true.
You are probably right about him not being able to remember a thing. Has this guy (and others like him) never heard the word "retirement?" I am so tired of seeing him, Charlie Rose, larry King, and others. Is there no one under the age of 70 who can grace a television screen besides Anderson Cooper???
Maybe you're right! Probably! :)
Novak always has been a gutless RINO pillow biter. Gee don't stand up and defend the truth Bob someone might get mad at you!!!
I probably wish that Novak would just shut up and go away.
LOL...he really needs to find something else to do. Maybe a hobby of some sort?
ROTFLMAO...don't hold back, now! :)
Novac is a back stabbing, two timing, journalist of the lowest order who's conservatism is feigned.
BLITZER: Let me read to you what you wrote, just to be precise. These were the sensitive words. "Wilson never worked for the CIA, but his wife Valerie Plame is an agency operative on weapons of mass destruction. Two senior administration officials told me Wilson's wife suggested sending him to Niger to investigate the Italian report. The CIA says its counter-proliferation officials selected Wilson and asked his wife to contact him." Do you regret writing that story?
NOVAK: Well, it's a very interesting question. I probably do because it's caused me so much trouble. I don't think I did anything wrong, but as a practical matter, it wasn't a big scoop. You know, I think it was in the seventh paragraph of a 13-paragraph story or 11-paragraph story.
And so it was just a throw-away line. And the whole column was not abusive toward Joe Wilson in any way.

Novak appeared on CNN? I thought he was shown the door by that network. Apparently the old curmudgeon is still wanted by CNN.
He was for writing the article, before he was against it.
He'll continue to make trouble for this administration until he draws his last breath.
You think the old SOB would at least tell us who told him.
I'm tired of guessing!
