What the Times Didn't Say

In an astonishing display of cover your assitude, the NYTimes failed to disclose the following regarding why it may have held back its NSA story:
The paper offered no explanation to its readers about what had changed in the past year to warrant publication. It also did not disclose that the information is included in a forthcoming book, "State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration," written by James Risen, the lead reporter on yesterday's story. The book will be published in mid-January, according to its publisher, Simon & Schuster.
Hmmm...guess Bill Keller's been in DC recently. He's clearly caught a case of what Digby has so perfectly dubbed CRS disease: can't remember shit. Or is that CYA disease in his case?
