Journalists, Come Clean

Most news reports of Katrina Leung - particularly those in the Post and the Times - do their best to not mention that Leung was a Republican activist. Obviously we don't know Leung's guilt or innocence, but what we do know is that she was a Republican operative who was deeply involved with the Gore fundraising investigations. While it'll be too much to ask for the FBI to come clean about all this, I think it's perfectly reasonable (though naive) to expect that any journalists who used her as a source to do so. The use of journalists for partisan aims is a valid story, in fact it's THE story of the 90s.

But, I won't be holding my breath.
