Emptywheel Laments the Dishonesty of Max Frankel and the NY Times

Brian Zick

Emptywheel at firedoglake reviews a commentary on the Libby trial by the NY Times' Max Frankel, and sadly observes how neither Frankel nor other senior editors at the Times are willing to distinguish a difference between aiding and abetting government officials in criminal obstruction of justice from helping a whistleblower expose government corruption. And how they pride themselves on defending the former while pretending it's the latter.
