4. And what's the story with this paragraph?
"The White House said that Mr. Rove would consider an interview for this article if it were conducted off the record, with the provision that quotations could be put on the record with White House approval, a condition it said was set for other interviews with Mr. Rove. The New York Times declined."

Yeah, Rove will talk, but it has to be off the record, but we'll let you quote him if he doesn't say anything stupid or that otherwise reflects badly on himself or his boss. After all, as the former employer of Judith Miller, the Times has agreed to this before.

Has the Times finally wised up to how this administration has played them like a fucking Stradivarius for the last five years and more?
