Novak and the CIA Leak

Bob Novak, the columnist who outed Valerie Plame as a CIA agent, said in a speech before the John Locke Foundation

“I'm confident the president knows who the source is. I'd be amazed if he doesn't. … So I say, 'Don't bug me. Don't bug Bob Woodward. Bug the president as to whether he should reveal who the source is.”
This according to a CBS news story.

Novak is the first and primary person who should be asked about the leak. After all, he is the one who wrote about it. This kind of bullshit statement simply illuminates the arrogance of the talking heads of today's MSM. People like Novak, in their opinion, are above reproach and scrutiny. Their actions can not be questioned, so don't bother us is their attitude.

What every person should do is write their local paper and demand that they cease carrying Novak's column until he publically comes clean with who told him about Valerie Plame. Whether of not the President knows who leaked the info is important, but Novak has to answer for his own actions before he can call anyone elses into question.
