Novak's Shifting Accounts

I was working on a new entry that was going to highlight Novak's shifting versions of events regarding his outing of Valerie Plame Wilson, when I stumbled upon an entry at the site Media Matters for America which linked the articles I was planning to use and added a few other quotations I hadn't seen to boot. The site definitely leans liberal, but they try to correct anyone who makes an innaccurate claim. Here's the link to their nice recap.

Barring some bizarre revelation to explain these contradictions, it's pretty clear Novak has lied somewhere along the line. Did he also lie under oath to the grand jury? He seems to be feeling a great deal of stress, as witnessed by his now much ballyhooed incident at CNN, where he exclaims "bullshit" and then walks off. I had read about it, but finally saw it here. It really is pretty bizarre.

This whole affair should be wrapping up soon.
