Luskin - Big Liar

While there isn't all that much that is enlightening in Novak's piece what we do learn is that Luskin has been less than forthcoming with the press. Before this we were never entirely sure what Luskin knew when. That is, when he declared that "If Matt Cooper is going to jail to protect a source it's not Karl he's protecting" there was some possibility that his client had just been less than forthcoming to him.

However now we know that sometime between January and May Viveca Novak told him that Rove was Matt Cooper's source, so he knew.

Luskin's not a journalist, he's an attorney, and he's free to lie to the press on behalf of his client. But there have been numerous articles which have been based on information from a source who is most likely Luskin so journalists should be taking what he says with a few grains of salt.
