Book Sales Down, Must Generate More

So we need more marketing...

Plame, husband file lawsuit against Cheney, Libby, Rove

Former CIA officer Valerie Plame on Friday said she and her husband filed their lawsuit against top Bush administration officials "with heavy hearts" but at the same time "with a renewed sense of purpose."

Way way down, at the very end of the story, is the real juice to this affair. Books sales are not mentioned by CNN at all.

Novak told Fox the information was a "nice nugget" that came out during a long interview with the senior official -- whose identity the columnist still refuses to reveal -- and was not leaked in an effort to manipulate him. He also said a CIA spokesman he contacted before publication never told him her status was classified.

The senior official disclosed the information after Novak asked why the CIA would have sent Wilson to Niger, which Novak said he found odd.

"He's not a CIA agent. He is not anybody who knows Niger that well. He served there a long time ago," Novak told Fox. "(The source) said his wife worked in the Office of Nuclear Proliferation at the CIA, and she suggested he go."
Its all there. You just have to stomache the BS in the first 9/10ths of this article to get to it.
