5. Sabra!! Check this out!!
I finally went to the AP piece to go through word by word. The first thing that caught my eye was the byline: John Solomon. That rang a bell so, I googled . The top return is Americablog's "Monday, May 29, 2006

More on John Solomon, the Associated Press writer who wrote the bogus hit piece on Harry Reid today
by John in DC - 5/29/2006 09:25:00 PM

You might recall that this isn't Mr. Solomon's first brush with truthiness. From AMERICAblog last July, 2005 we learn of John Solomon's untrue reporting about Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson:
The Associated Press totally botched a rather significant part of the Rove-Plame story today.

Basically, AP is now supposedly quoting Wilson as saying his wife was NOT an undercover agent when Rove outed her. Here's what AP wrote today:"

Things that make you go, Hmmmm.

Then, I checked your links...Yep! The ABC News is an AP credit. AP's not credited in the NYT, but the sources and spokespersons are the same. It also seems to be primarily a complete rehash of their reporting to this date.

Looks suspiciously like the *cough* good *cough* Mr. Solomon's piece is going to news outlets at lightning speed.
