Emma Schwartz has the write-up here:
FROM THE COURTHOUSE: “I say, there’s a lot of people here for such a small note,” defense attorney Ted Wells said to special prosecutor Pat Fitzgerald in federal court this morning. He was referring to the more than 50-person crowd of reporters and lawyers who had gathered in the hallway of the D.C. federal courthouse while waiting for Judge Reggie Walton’s courtroom to open. They were there to hear about the latest jury note.
The faces in the crowd were largely familiar to anyone who sat through the four-week long trial, except for one: Hardball’s Chris Matthews. Matthews’ name had come up repeatedly during trial for his comments in July 2003 that incited Scooter’s ire. Libby attempted to avoid eye contact when he passed Matthews in the hallway, which was caught by a courtroom sketch artist.

We’ve heard that some folks were upset after the Washington Press Club Foundation’s recent Congressional Dinner. A few were upset that, during the event that honored gender-barrier-breaking Helen Thomas, there was a continuing theme about how the Washington Press Club Foundation was started, in part, because the National Press Club didn’t admit women (the Women’s National Press Club, founded in 1919, ultimately became the Washington Press Club Foundation. The NPC admitted women starting in 1971).
Some NPC’ers were upset that it wasn’t put into context: That such discrimination was long in the past and that there have been seven female presidents of the NPC (never mind the financial support given to the WPCF by the NPC).
