Jay Rosen says it’s time to give the cold shoulder to Robert Novak:
I, for one, have had it with Robert Novak. And if all the journalists who are talking today about “chilling effects” and individual conscience mean what they say, they will, as a matter of conscience and pride, start giving Novak himself the big chill.
: It was Novak yesterday who said that Rhenquist was retiring, setting cable news operations across the land into high alert. He was wrong. I half wonder whether somebody wasn’t gaming Novak to game his credibility.
