Dana Priest is good.

On Meet the Press on Sunday, Washington Post reporter Dana Priest defended press freedom, and the right for the NYTimes to publish Bush's secret program monitoring international banking transactions.


She was sitting next to conservative politician William Bennett. Bennett is a man who made millions lecturing people on virtue and an arch-critic of the press for printing stories about secret Bush administration surveillance programs over the past few months.
Dana Priest said it is not a crime for the media to disclose classified information went on to say that people would like to make casino gambling against the law, but it is not illegal. I must say I didn't get the connection... until I found out that Bennett had once been forced to admit a gambling problem. Hence his discomfort! (C&L has the video here)
One of those great TV moments!
