Say Goodbye to the Rove/Plame story. Terrorism 24/7
The Rove story just got the boot from the London attacks. The MSM will dutifully bury the Plame story and ALL we will hear now is TERRORISM......

9. Abu Ghraib? What's that?
See, I've already forgotton all the bad stuff I don't need to concern myself with. That kool-aide is very refreshing!

4. I respectfully disagree.
I think it brings the incompetence of the administration into sharper focus.

10. I tend to agree with you (I hope we're right!)
Seriously, the Rove-Plame connection will be off the MSM radar for now (it really wasn't "front-page" level yet anyway). But the work into the investigation will still be going on like before, and in a few days something will break on that story that will bring it back to the attention of the media and we'll hear more about it.

There will always be missing children/pop-star scandals/terrorist activity/etc. that will make the headlines and top-of-the-hour updates. But it only takes the public's focus off of the important things; it doesn't make them go away.

12. I keep thinking of Kerry
hammering home the message that the USA had Usama bin Laden trapped, then let him go. We had the best fighting forces on earth where they needed to be to protect innocent people from terrorist attacks, but Bush removed them in order to invade Iraq. I am convinced that others will be thinking along similar lines in the upcoming days.

13. This should also come out
Billions of dollars for protection, billions of dollars spent on 'security' and we are still vulnerable. (We being The West.) Kerry and numerous other Democrats were right.

BTW, Sen. Kerry's daughter Vanessa is a an MD studying in London. She has probably been called into work to tend to the needy.

5. Really, it just doesn't matter
It's in the hands of the grand jury. Indictments will be handed down. When that happens, there will be no ignoring it.

This is legitimate news. It's not like they're burying the story over shark attacks or a pretty white girl disappearing.

7. It could have the opposite effect
We are not at the beginning of the War on Terror, we have been going through this for almost 4 years. It is entirely possible that the reaction to this will focus on incompetence and how such a thing as the London bombings could be allowed to happen after all the money that has been spent on security.

The beginning of a War is when everyone becomes SuperPatriots. The end/middle of a war is when people begin to question their leaders and ask troubling questions about how events could unfold as they did. People are not fools.

11. Everything is on hold. All London all the time.
I'm surprised they didn't report on how the news from London is affecting times in the Tour de France....
