As editor of OpEdnews, I started wondering when Jason Leopold's news that Karl Rove was indicted, which we made our main headline, did not show up in the mainstream news. He's been superbly reliable and great and bringing news ahead of others. So I wrote to him:

I 'm getting emails asking why the mainstream media aren 't reporting on Rove 's indictment. And now, one of my Trusted Authors has written this article

http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_steven_l_060515_karl_rove_indictment.htm

Any word you can give me on what 's up?

Rob Kall

Jason replied,

I have now been turned into the story --again. Robert Luskin and Mark Corallo, Rove 's attorney and spokesman, are liars. Damned liars. I have five sources on this. In the news business when you want to discredit a reporter and an explosive report you call the spokesman and get him to issue a denial. My reports have gone way beyond the spokesman and the lawyer to get to the truth. I am SHOCKED that the mainstream have followed this up by simply calling a spokesman.

I responded to Jason, "Can I post this on our site? Or, do you want to write something on this?"

He replied,
You can add this:

I am amazed that the blogosphere would lend credence to the statements of people who have consistently lied about Rove 's role in this case. This is a White House that denied Rove 's involvement in the leak. This is a White House that has lied and lied and lied. And yet the first question that people ask is "why would Rove 's spokesman lie? " Because they can, because they do, and because they have. This is an administration that has attacked and discredited their detractors. I am amazed that not a single reporter would actually do any real investigative work and get to the bottom of this story. Surely, their must be another intrepid reporter out there that has sources beyond a spokesman.

We also have word that Joe Wilson, Valerie Plame's husband, also heard the same report of Rove's indictment.
