David Brock Smears Robert Novak

The liberal Media Matters for America is calling on CNN not to renew Robert Novak’s contact with the network, which expires next year. The liberal media watchdog, started by conservative-turned-liberal David Brock, has repeatedly attacked Novak for his role in the Valerie Plame affair.

During his time away from CNN, Novak has continued to write his syndicated column and edit the Evans-Novak Political Report (a sister publication to Human Events).

Here’s the Media Matters pitch:

Last August, CNN suspended syndicated columnist Robert D. Novak, a frequent contributor to the cable news channel’s programs, for uttering an obscenity and storming off the set. He has not been reinstated but is currently in negotiations with CNN to renew his contract (which is set to expire in 2006). Please click here and urge CNN not to renew his contract!

Novak should not be a contributor to CNN. In the two years since he exposed former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV’s wife, Valerie Plame, as a CIA operative, Novak has made several contradictory statements about important issues in the case. In addition, he has a long history of spreading conservative misinformation on CNN.

P.S. Make sure to tell your friends and family to contact CNN as well.

Novak supporters should feel free to also contact CNN and express their faith in the venerable Washington, D.C., reporter.
