Newstory Posted by Journalists About Facts

There's a fascinating, dare-I-say "investigative" piece up on ABC News ("exclusive!") about how the Attorneys-Fired story picked up steam. It discusses the prep-session that occurred before the initial testimony before Sen. Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Apparently
The official, Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty, ignored White House Counsel Harriet Miers and senior lawyers in the Justice Department when he told the committee last month of specific reasons why the administration fired seven U.S. attorneys — and appeared to acknowledge for the first time that politics was behind one dismissal.
It describes this bizarre and unfamiliar tale of a politiician Not Taking Shit from administration officials trying to obfuscate.

My hat's off to Schumer and to Jan Crawford Greenburg, author of the piece.
