Libby Indicted

Was CNN really first?

CNN Breaking News: “Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby, Vice President Cheney’s chief of staff, indicted by grand jury on charges of obstruction of justice, making false statements and perjury in CIA leak probe.”

UPDATE 1:24 p.m.: And was ABC really first with this: ‘SCOOTER’ LIBBY HAS SUBMITTED HIS LETTER OF RESIGNATION TO THE WHITE HOUSE

This is also as good a time as any to point out the Wall Street Journal’s leak probe news tracker. Follow along as the news happens!

UPDATE 1:54 p.m.: A reader fills in the details: “USAT beat ABC by a minute. USAT e-mail at 12:51, ABC e-mail at 12:52, BBC pop-up at 12:53, CNN at 12:58, CBS at 1:01, MSNBC at 1:03, FOX at 1:11.”
