Self-Regulating

I always enjoy the reporting of Jason Leopold.  I have used him as a source for some items in the Plamegate Chronology.  Sometimes, though, he does seem just a little too far ahead of the curve.

Like many following the story, I was excited by Jason's reporting last week that Rove has already been indicted and has been given time to straighten his affairs at the White House.  This would have been the second major shoe dropping, needing now just a smoking gun in the VPs hands to bring Cheney down too.  However, you will notice that I did not rush into print with a link to the story.   Tim Grieve at Salon has an excellent run-down on why.  We all hope that Jason is correct, but we all need a bit more proof than he seems to be able to share right now.

At the same time, Grieve's piece answers the charge that the blogosphere is simply reactive and unthinking.  He shows that by our general reaction to Jason's story we are a well-regulated -- self-regulated -- bunch of folks.  Good for us!
