Bob Woodward should have recused himself from any public commentary about the Plame case given that he knew all along that he was a material witness to the investigation. Previously on Larry King Live, Woodward downplayed the significance of the investigation, said it would be insignificant in the long run, and called Patrick Fitgerald a “junkyard” investigator.
Well, he’s now going to tell us ALL he knows tonight, again on Larry King Live. . .supposedly.
If this ends up being another media charade to stroke Woodward’s celebrity needs, he really needs to be fired by the Post. Otherwise, we need to know who the source was — and why he felt comfortable commenting on a case about which he definitely should have RECUSED himself. Stop the duplicity, Bob.
