If anyone thought the New York Times' reporting over the weekend was a sign of better things to come in its coverage of the Valerie Plame case, this morning's paper is surely a disappointment. As other newspapers explore the role the vice president's office may have played in outing Plame, today's Times offers exactly no news articles about the investigation. But that's not to say that the Times is silent on the case: On the editorial page, Times columnist John Tierney offers up a column explaining that Plamegate is much ado about nothing.
