What I find most aggravating about the Inside Politics thing is how Ed Henry closed the segment with Carville:
HENRY: Thanks, James Carville. And I’m sorry as well that Bob Novak obviously left the set a little early. I had told him in advance that we were going to ask him about the CIA leak case. He was not here for me to be able to ask him about that. Hopefully we’ll be able to ask him about that in the future.
Novak didn’t walk off the set because of the Plame stuff. He walked off the set because Carville was being a jerk. He’s successfully avoided “CIA leak” questions in the past and can handle that quite well. Ed Henry handed the Left their desired spin on the walkout.
