Are you as frustrated as I am by he-said, she-said "balanced" reporting that in the New York Times that doesn't trouble to check whether the facts cited by either cite are actually, well, facts? Well, here's an article which isn't like that. It's about prospective Republican spin of the indictments of White House staffers that are likely to come out of Patrick Fitzgerald's grand jury any day now. It's not like the point-counterpoint stenography because, well, there isn't any counterpoint.

For example: the article cites Kay Bailey Hutchison as saying that the likely charges, on perjury concerning the outing of a covert CIA officer and her entire operation, are a "technicality". To which there is no counterpoint offered. Not from a Democrat. Not from a Republican. Not even from Sen. Hutchison herself, who had a very different view of the gravity of a perjury charge when Bill Clinton was accused of lying about the details of consensual sex...

This was what we posted shortly before Fitz's indictments:

On First Looking Into Fitzgerald's Indictment

A Pre-Emptive Poem
From A Keats Ghost To Gothamimage:

Much have I witnessed the Scandal of Bush
And many awful lies and outrages seen;
Round many breaches have I been
Which bards in fealty to Republic hold.
Oft of one great Injury had I been told
That worried the Founders in repose;
Yet did I never see it so clear
Till I heard Fitzgerald speak out loud and bold:
Then I felt like some Justice on High
When a pure Truth comes into his view:
Or like Honest Abe when with wise eyes
He saved the Union - and all his men
Look'd at each other with great relief -
Silent, upon a stillness at Appomattox.
