Time To Admit Oversight?


Is Time trying to bury the attorney general scandal that’s seized Washington, D.C., for the past three months? In just the last week, new documents emerged contradicting Alberto Gonzales‘s account of his role in the firings, a low-level Department of Justice staffer announced her intent to plead the Fifth if asked to testify before Congress, and Justice officials admitted that it had misled Congress when it denied last month that Karl Rove played a role in deciding which U.S. attorneys got the boot. Yet the new issue of Time, on stands today, contains precisely zero stories on the scandal. Nothing. As though it’s not happening.
