Press Ignoring Rove Indictment

Truthout.org is spreading rumors on the internets, and the press doesn't care.

Jason Leopold reports that Rove has informed the White House that he will soon be indicted, at which point he will resign. But this news of the impending indictment appears nowhere in the mainstream press. Leopold's guess about why (I heard him on Jay Marvin this morning) is that members of the press have called for confirmation, but have either not gotten a response or have gotten a denial.

Now, that's never stopped the press from reporting rumors before. My guess is, members of the press have been requested to sit on the rumor until after the President's immigration speech tonight, and possibly tomorrow, to not distract from "the message," giving the Pres. two news cycles.
