Searching for Meaning in the ‘B’ham News’
by Scott Horton of Harper's

.....There’s a very good reason for this campaign of vague innuendo,
and it’s that each of the accusations fades into oblivion when it’s
exposed to the sunlight. It’s so much easier just to destroy someone
with rumor-mongering. And in fact the Siegelman trial rested on
exactly that, a conviction procured through judicially-sanctioned
rumor-mongering. It made a complete farce of our criminal justice
system. And that farce is being exposed, not by the press in
Alabama, but by Time magazine, The New York Times, the Los
Angeles Times and CBS News....

....the writers and editors at the Birmingham News have been going
hog-wild after Jill Simpson. Of course, a private person who comes
forward with such accusations puts herself in the crosshairs and has
to expect to be examined. But the very strange thing here is that the
accounts revolve around a series of very public persons: Bob Riley,
Rob Riley, William Canary, William Pryor, Jefferson Beauregard
Sessions, Mark Fuller and Richard Shelby. And the accusations
present an opportunity to test them and their acts. But what we see
from the Birmingham News is a flat out drive to protect and insulate

biggest scandals yet, and may be the real reason Karl Rove resigned
when he did. Here's the clip for those that weren't there.
