Omerta & Big Media

The old game of who knows and when did they know it has begun anew in the Plame case. I am annoyed that the Washington press corps is playing this game, because they already know what they know and have known for a while.

In the end it comes down to the privileges of position over the public's need to know. Everyone with something to gain by helping the public has something to lose by ratting out those scumbags..er sources, they are protecting. It's no different for White House staffers or newpaper journalists.

This is a game of one-upmanship that David Brooks could have predicted. Insufferable media jerks are going to keep their mouths clamped in defense of their 'integrity' in an attempt to stress their moral superiority to Washington politicians.

Subpeonas may or may not be able to cut through this conspiracy of silence. The blogospherians have nothing to lose - if we knew, everyone would know.
