Firstly, reporters from the New York Times are acting as agents of the White House. Not terribly surprising considering the Journolist and all but does add some weight to the argument that the Main Stream Media is actually the Make Believe Media (from Susan Swift at bigjournalism.com). When the media is acting as a agent of the government, then the media cannot be trusted.
Secondly, the White House knew about the documents and did nothing more than direct their media-linked agents to try to redact them. So this makes the White House complicit in the release of the documents. Which makes them traitors.
Am I off base here??
