Connecting the Dots

What happens when you try to tell the truth.

There's a fine example in Raw Story's report of how you WILL be punished if you dare to tell the truth and cross Karl Rove.

CBS' 60 Minutes broadcast Sunday regarding the alleged political prosecution of Democratic Alabama governor Don Siegelman went black in several Alabama cities.

Only the Siegelman section went dark. According to WHNT-TV, the local CBS affiliate, the issue was caused by a technical malfunction.


The interview is available on the CBS website.

The White House put pressure on CBS to kill the show, those close to the case say. Journalists covering the story have been attacked. The case's most prominent whistleblower, Dana Jill Simpson, recently testified, under oath, to Congress about Rove's involvement in politicizing the Bush Justice Department

Her house mysteriously caught fire after she came forward.

UPDATE: you can watch the segment at Think PRogress.
