"It’s the larger, untold story in all of this -- that he [Arthur Sulzberger New York Times Publisher] now runs the newsroom.”—Huffington Blog Source on the "Plamegate” leaks
Here’s my comment which was not published on The Huffington Post:
Ever see a thriller where the main characters are finding out truths about how their world really operates, and no one in their world knows it but them, and us, the audience? Then as you walk out of the theater you think, what if this really is reality?
Your keen explanation of the world of the NY Times and its leader, Arthur Sulzberger, illustrates that transparent view of the whole Rove/Plamegate case. Your uncanny brilliant “dot-connecting” once again has shown the clear light through a troublesome window into the workings of the Bush regime.
What does Sulzberger’s capricious support of Miller say of the Times and its reputation?
The questions are, 1. When will Fitzgerald take action against the Plamegate perpetrators, number one of which is Rove, and 2. How much of the “other-world” that you paint, of what is reality, reaches beyond a political conundrum—Plamegate—into all of the plans and policies of the Bush administration?
Despite the drop in the polls of Bush’s Iraq War tactics and his popularity, how far gone are we, already, into his dictatorship? You’ve articulately put the ball in our court, Arianna—let’s hope we don’t drop it.
