News Timing

So according to the LA Times the NY Times withheld the NSA story until after the election. Yeah that's helpful to Bush as usual. No doubt they were afraid of the timing as with Arnold's exploits. But the timing screwed them anyway since this book by Risen and Lichtblau is now cited by wingnuts as the sole reason for holding the story when in fact it is an irrelevant conclusion. Since the reporters would have scooped the paper why wait? Sure, but the real reason they waited was fear of Bush and the preception of sandbagging him. They should have reported it and let W handle it in the three debates he lost.
