Leak To Undermine

It appears the "sharing" of documents has been seen by the prosecution as an attempt to undermine Joe Wilson.

(NY Times)Mr. Fitzgerald's filing talks not of an effort to level with Americans but of "a plan to discredit, punish or seek revenge against Mr. Wilson." It concludes, "It is hard to conceive of what evidence there could be that would disprove the existence of White House efforts to 'punish Wilson.' "

With more filings expected from Mr. Fitzgerald, the prosecutor's work has the potential to keep the focus on Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney at a time when the president is struggling with his lowest approval ratings since he took office.
Is it me, or has the media gone into attack mode since they were called out for being the problem in Iraq?
