The Mechanics of the Rove-Cooper Waiver
The Washington Post has an article today detailing the mechanics of the Rove-Cooper waiver that Cooper relied on to avoid going to jail.
Cooper's wife, Democratic strategist Mandy Grunwald, who is also the grandaughter of Time founder Henry Grunwald, says that there really was no point in him going to jail once Time Magazine made the decision to turn over his e-mails which included Rove's name as Cooper's source.
The article is more interesting for its description of a volatile meeting between Time Magazine's Normal Pearlstein and the mag's reporter's yesterday.
The reporters claim that Pearlstein's decision has resulted in their sources drying up on them and putting Time at the bottom of their media lists.
