Matthews Attempts to Get to the Bottom of NY Times 'Spy' Story
MATTHEWS: So what do you think about your paper running that story, the very day of the President's greatest victory? You guys are raining on his parade in the best day of his life.
KORNBLUT: If only we were that organized. No, I think this is a really good story, knew nothing about it.
MATTHEWS: Why did you break it today?
KORNBLUT: There was room in the paper. I honestly have no idea why, I don't think there was any big calculation behind if I had to guess.
MATTHEWS: Has the Times taken any stink from the WH for having take half the front page instead of praising the fact that 11 million Iraqis voted yesterday in the Arab world. You have no criticism on this?
KORNBLUT: I work there Chris, what are you talking about? No, half the front page was devoted to the Iraqi elections and honestly, I was working on other things today so I don't know.
