47. James Renner should have let you tell your side
On the other hand, Since Renner is now accused, its fairest to find out what Mrs. Connell's take is on the article. Does she say its fabricated?

Are you still on good terms with her? I'm very interested in this story and think a follow up would make a very interesting piece.

One of the biggest questions I have about this whole thing is the outing of Mrs. Connell as a source. We are told that the Connells were both in great danger. Their house was being watched. Bomb threats occurred. Mr Connell confided that he was very afraid.

Yet, Mrs. Connell bravely went out to meet you in a park. From your reports, I gathered that you had positive feelings about Mrs. Connell.

If Mrs. Connell was in such terrible danger, and she was good to you, why did you out her as a source and expose her to all the dangers of Karl Rove and potential bombers and murderers? On top of that, why was she outed the morning following her husband's tragic death, when she had so much else to deal with?

I have to wonder if what you said is true, that Mrs. Connell might feel betrayed and needlessly endangered. She may be saying what she is saying now to retaliate.

Another possibility I thought of: Perhaps Mrs. Connell is terrified that she will be murdered for cooperating with you and passed on these remarks to distance herself from you, hoping that the assassins will think she's harmless and leave her alone.

With those possibilities out there, I think it would be only fair to get Mrs. Connell's side of this controversy.
