Mr. Smith, is that you - Update - Response from the Left

Seems there is a blogger on a site called, "Think Progress", who claims to have called C-BS and got a absolute confirmation that the two Michaels are not the same:

"It took me a grand total of one phone call to CBS to see if this rumor was true. The answer is no. The Michael Smith who used to work for Mary Mapes is not the same Michael Smith who writes for the London times."

Heh, of course you did. You spoke to someone at CBS.

They got right on the phone and told you "Yeah, sure, that's the ticket! He's not THAT Mr. Smith. Our Mr.Smith is another Mr. Smith and the two aren't the same Mr. Smith."

This from the network of "Shuffle-Truth".

Well thank you! That certainly clears it up!

Unfortunately, while I'll not call anyone a fibber, nontheless I find this blogger's claims hard to believe. I'm a journalist and have contacted CBS (not a receptionist but people I really know there) on numerous occassions and found that CBS has gag rule to give no further information to Mr. Smith's identity or whereabouts (this I have on good account). They are keeping it as tight as a ankle bracelet around Rosie's waist.

I wouldn't consider CBS a valid source in discovering if the two Michaels are one. The only way that will happen is if Mr. Smith from Texas steps forward.

However, that isn't going to happen I will wager, that's why we'll find out one way or another.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
