Media, old and new, tell two different
Siegelman stories
by Tom Baxter of Southern Political Report

At times, the animosity between the two sides of the media divide has
equaled that between the two parties in Alabama. Horton has sharply
criticized the Birmingham News, the Mobile Press-Register and the
Huntsville Times, all former Newhouse papers now owned by Advance
Publications, for their coverage.

In a piece published before the segment aired last week, Billy Curran,
a former Mobile Press-Register reporter whose investigative pieces on
Siegelman formed part of the government’s case against him, called
Horton “a bully, liar, phony and pompous ass.” Larisa Alexandrovna,
who has written on the case for the online publication Raw Story,
responded that Curran’s “entire career now rests on the very notion
that he was either used to launder lies or that his own lies are about to
be exposed.”

This, in other words, is a media story with teeth.

"VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Karl Rove Holds 'Free
Don Siegelman' Banner"
The Brad Blog

























....Last night on Dan Abrams' MSNBC program Dana Jill Simpson, the
Republican operative who made the claims, responded to Rove's
allegations that she was lying: "Since Karl Rove has said that and he
feels so good saying that, what I want him to do is go and swear before
the United States Congress and swear what he's saying is true."

....Rove has refused a subpoena to testify under oath to Congress on
matters relating to this and the related U.S. Attorney Purge scandal,
leading to a recommendation for Contempt of Congress charges by
the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. U.S. Attorney General Michael
Mukasey recently testified to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee
(video here) that the Dept. of Justice would refuse to enforce contempt
citations against White House officials.
