Media overlook unanswered questions and inconsistencies in Cheney shooting disclosure


Summary: Media reporting on the delay between when Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot one of his hunting partners and the public disclosure of that information have overlooked unanswered questions and inconsistent accounts of how the incident was revealed to the press.

The two points they concentrate on in this Feb 14 article:
  • Media overlooked Armstrong's conflicting accounts of whether she coordinated with Cheney
  • Media ignored Rove's involvement while reporting that Vice President's Office was solely responsible for delayed disclosure
