Reuters Works Foley Story Into Adam Gadahn Treason Indictment

You have to hand it to the liberal media. The American government is prosecuting its first treason case in 50 years, but the press has managed to maintain its focus on more important issues. You know, like the Mark Foley email scandal. Such dedication in the face of silly distractions is truly admirable.

Reuters reporter James Vicini took a stand for truth in his article about the Adam Gadahn:

Justice Department officials denied the case was timed to deflect attention from the fallout over lewd computer messages sent by a former Republican congressman to young male aides, a scandal that may help Democrats seize control of Congress in the November 7 elections.

Hat tip to James Taranto who adds: "To our knowledge, Reuters has not denied that this is intended to deflect attention from the fallout over Reuters' Ann Coulter scandal."

Last time I checked, DOJ officials haven't commented on whether they've stopped beating their spouses. I'll be waiting for Vicini's followup on this.
