More something to do something about...

Katie Couric pulls a Deborah Howell . Which is fine, as long as she does what she promises, which is to follow up on her assertion that Jack Abramoff gave money to Democrats as well as Republicans. When Howard Dean told her "Not one dime.", Katie sighed, pulled a face and stated authoritatively, "We'll have to look into that." We'll see if she does. Here's where to write if she doesn't: Today@NBC.com or call 212-664-4249.

Or better yet, write/call NBC's ombudsman: david.mccormick@nbc.com
212-664-3984

Katie was tough on Howard Dean. Nothing wrong with that. But to claim that the indian tribes defrauded by Jack Abramoff giving money to Democrats is the same thing as Bush-Pioneer Jack Abramoff giving money to Democrats is ridiculous. Especially since those tribes gave less money to Dems after they hired Abramoff than they did before. Oddly enough, the tribes doubled, tripled and quadrupled their giving to the GOP after hiring Abramoff.

And Chris Matthews pulls his 100th Deborah Howell.
