173. NBC's Today Show just covered this as a top headline!!
They did say that Rove claims to have never mentioned Plame by name but that he was the "secret source" for Matt Cooper and that "a few days later" Plame's name appeared in an article by Bob Novak.


Certainly the implication by NBC News is there.
