IFILL GOES DOWN I can't believe it! Tonight on the Newshour, anchor Gwen Ifill fell for the biggest whopper in the entire GOP talking points arsenal!

She parroted--to the word--the White House-sponsored, climate-based explanation for the swelling interest in the Rove story:

GWEN IFILL: Mr. Mehlman, welcome.

KEN MEHLMAN: Thanks. I should say welcome to you.

GWEN IFILL: Thank you. We are in the middle of one of those summer scandals that happen in Washington...
Oh, Gwen! Say it ain't so!
