This week on NOW:
With possible indictments from the special prosecutor in the outing of
undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame expected before week's end, NOW goes
inside the story of how her name became public. NOW's Maria Hinojosa
looks at the White House spin machine, examines the Plame case as part
of how the administration marketed and protected its case for war, and
questions whether the media was misled or if it dropped the ball.
Senior staffers at the White House are the focus of a special counsel's
investigation, and the President's nominee for the Supreme Court was
roundly criticized by senior members of the Republican Party before
withdrawing. Is there a crisis in the GOP? NOW regular contributor
Christine Todd Whitman, who has had some choice words for her own party
in the past, speaks out about what's wrong with the Republican Party.
