When is Fitzgerald going to bring charges against the rest?

From the NR Media Blog, a short list of fuzzy MSM memories:

* Former White House spokesman Ari Fleischer testified that he told John Dickerson (then with TIME magazine) about Valerie Plame. Dickerson denies this.

* Fleischer also testified that he told NBC’s David Gregory about Valerie Plame. NBC Washington bureau chief Tim Russert later denied that Gregory ever received the leak.

* Washington Post reporter Walter Pincus testified that Fleischer told him about Valerie Plame. Fleischer denies this.

* Bob Woodward testified that he had discussions with Pincus about Valerie Plame. Pincus denies this.

* Russert first told the FBI that he couldn’t rule out the possibility that he discussed Valerie Plame with Scooter Libby. He later testified that he could.

* NBC’s Andrea Mitchell has yet to testify, but she first said publicly that everyone knew about Valerie Plame prior to Robert Novak’s column. She now denies that she herself knew (and successfully resisted a subpoena).

Then NR nails it: Remind me: Why is Libby the only one on trial for perjury?
