TruthOut.org promised to take a wait-and-see approach after getting a little ahead of the news cycle by reporting that Karl Rove had been charged with perjury. Now we discover what “wait-and-see” means:
Truthout of course published an article on May 13 which reported that Karl Rove had in fact already been indicted. Obviously there is a major contradiction between our version of the story and what was reported yesterday. As such, we are going to stand down on the Rove matter at this time. We defer instead to the nation’s leading publications.
Stand down? Stand down? What the hell is that about?
UPDATE. Some background on TruthOut star reporter Jason Leopold.
