When The News Media Is Not Interested In The News

The NY Times has a blog with an article about a recent interview of Richard Armitrage on CNN

According to the NY Times blog, some are not too impressed with Mr. Armitrage's "apology".

But Mr. Armitage’s words didn’t go nearly far enough, according to, the blog that The New York Times once profiled for its “a fanatical devotion to the intricacies of the Libby case.”

“Armitage’s response was unusual for people in the Bush Administration in that he owned up to some culpability,” the blog said. “But was it a full acceptance of responsibility?” Their answer, which highlights the comments of several readers of the blog, casts doubt on that Mr. Armitage could have so easily misused a classified memorandum

NEW FLASH for the NY Times... according to the same Richard Armitrage, it was Joe Wilson who was leaking Valerie Plame's name. He told Bob Woodward that exact thing.
Woodward: Well it was Joe Wilson who was sent by the agency, isn’t it?
Armitage: His wife works for the agency.
Woodward: Why doesn’t that come out? Why does that have to be a big secret?
Armitage: (over) Everybody knows it.
Woodward: Everyone knows?
Armitage: Yeah. And they know ’cause Joe Wilson’s been calling everybody. He’s pissed off ’cause he was designated as a low level guy went out to look at it. So he’s all pissed off.

I have posted this fact in the NY Times blog's "moderated" comments more than once but for some reason, it is as if they do not want to know this fact.

What are the odds?
