Zwichenzug media watch...
What they don't have is any mention of this story from the Boston Globe which reports that, "Republican staff members of the US Senate Judiciary Commitee infiltrated opposition computer files for a year, monitoring secret strategy memos and periodically passing on copies to the media."
This is a significantly more serious charge than was originally made back in November, and it should be among today's lead stories. CNN certainly has the space.
But then, the story isn't given any prominence on the Globe's splash page either. Nor does it grace the top level of the New York Times. And I didn't hear anything about it on NPR this morning.
Maybe this is just the normal course of events and as the day wears on the story will percolate into prominence. Maybe.
