ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the inditement of I. Lewis Libby and the media's reaction to it. "The New York Times" noted that the charges of perjury, obstruction of justice and false statements filed by Patrick Fitzgerald are very serious, and the Republicans' attempt to belittle the charges is a switch because they were happy to impeach Bill Clinton on similar charges. "The Wall Street Journal," on the other hand, claimed the charges were a case of criminalizing politics. Indicting targets for false statements or perjury is a vice limited to special prosecutors and independent counsels, but there is strong reason to believe a crime was committed, according to the author.
