"Go ahead, Jeff": Talon News "reporter" Jeff Ga ... [Media Matters for America]

I'm not a reporter. But I play one in the White House. I could go on for hours, but the other liberal blogs, like the Daily KOS, are saying it all. Like, is this guy a porn star? A male prostitute? One thing's for sure: they loved him in the White House.
White House-credentialed fake news reporter "Jeff Gannon" from fake news agency "Talon News" was cited by the Washington Post as having the only access to an internal CIA memo that named Joseph Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, as a covert CIA agent. Gannon, in a question posed to Wilson in an October 2003 interview, referred to the memo (to which no other news outlet had access, according to the Post). Gannon subsequently has been subpoenaed by the federal grand jury looking into the Plame outing.
I always figured the Valerie Plame outing would be one of these prick's Watergates. They have lots of others. Wesley Clark hinted at the problems this White House will have with sunshine:
"This administration is trying to do something that ought to be politically impossible to do in a democracy, and that is to govern against the will of the majority. That requires twisted facts, silence, secrecy, and very poor lighting. That's why you need night-vision goggles to see what's going on over there."—General Wesley Clark, US Army (Ret.)
Since this fits into the Bush is committing treason theme, I'll be posting the follow ups at my Bush Treason blog.
