and then halftime.Dick Cheney And The Dog That Didn’t Bark Tim Russert: Strange BedfellowLibby Live: Tim Russert, Three
"The filletiing of Tim Russert continues into a second hour this morning… the first hour focused on Russert never disclosing his gabby interview with the FBI in November 2003, either to TV viewers or in fighting a grand jury subpoena in 2004. Of special interest to the defense is why the special counsel never declared this interview to be a waiver of Russert's First Amendment claims to confidentiality, nor did they specifically agreed not to use it against Russert."
Fitz says if we admit this, we might as well throw out "Whitmore on Evidence" (a textbook, apparently) and replace it with "Imus on evidence." More Imus snark follows — "throwing a bunch of speculationand TV cable shows in front of the jury," "claiming that someone would be embarrassed because of what was said on a Don Imus show" "there is no Imus exception to the hearsay rules."
