From David S. Broder of The Washington Post comes
this article about the apologies due Karl Rove now that Richard Armitage has been identified as the leaker in the Wilson/Plame non-affair.
Broder brings up a few ludicrous statements from ex-Clinton aide, Sidney Blumenthal, and this choice one from Newsweek: "in a July 25, 2005, cover story on Rove, after dutifully noting that Rove's lawyer said the prosecutor had told him that Rove was not a target of the investigation, added: "But this isn't just about the Facts, it's about what Rove's foes regard as a higher Truth: That he is a one-man epicenter of a narrative of Evil."
Shades of fake but accurate again.
Broder dismisses these conspiracy theories as "silliness", but I disagree. I believe these articles were deliberate and premeditated attempts by the liberal MSM to destroy Karl Rove's reputation and weaken the Bush administration.
No silliness here at all.
