Novak: 'Reprehensible' if McCain faked VP announcement
Columnist Robert Novak tells Fox News that he suspects that he might have been used as a pawn to steal publicity from Senator Obama after airing a rumor that Senator McCain planned to shortly announce his vice presidential pick.

"I had a suggestion from a very senior McCain aide late yesterday afternoon that he was going to announce it this week," Novak told Fox News' Martha MacCallum. "They suggested that I put it out."

"I since have been told by certain people that this was a dodge," Novak lamented. "They were trying to get a little publicity to rain on Obama's campaign. That's pretty reprehensible, if it's true."

10. Yet he continues to protect his source.........
same as during the Plame deal. When a source lies to a reporter, it seems to me the source gives up the right to anonymity.

Novack should make public the whole conversation like this.... "I called Joe McCain-guy at 8 pm. He told me this story and said I could print it but without using him as a source."

He won't because he's gutless.

7. Novack should post the email or voice mail if he has it.
And name names.

11. Novak: Even the GOP does not respect you.
You were used to betray this country (Valerie Plame) and now you are being used to prop up the worst candidate in 50 years (McSame).

Get an f'ing clue.

13. They never had any respect for him
He is just a tool to them... some Republicans have just abused their tools less than others.
