Here’s the Washington Post account of Porter Goss’s departure. Karl Rove and Tony Snow are happy. The departure is portrayed as part of the current reshuffling; the President is said to have “lost confidence” in Goss some time ago; no scandal is mentioned until graf 17; hookers aren’t mentioned at all; and the suddenness of the departure goes unmentioned and therefore unanalyzed.
Here’s the Wall Street Journal’s account of the same event. Karl Rove and Tony Snow aren’t happy.
It’s possible that the Post is right; but didn’t the reporters owe it to their readers to point out the facts inconsistent with the account they give?
