Bill Keller offers juicy Bush tale, covers Times' arse

Why did the NY Times sit on the story that Bush was spying on us?
"We have James Risen, Eric Lichtblau, and Bill Keller all talking to us from the New York Times, who talked to us very openly about a meeting that Bill Keller had with the President of the United States, in which the President asked him, along with General Hayden and others, to hold off on publishing that story.
But that wasn't it, because that was right before the Times finally ran the story, after the 2004 election.

Why did the Times sit on the story for a year before that?
Why they held onto the story, no one will actually talk to us frankly about, so we don't really know." Raney Aronson, Frontline producer of News War, interviewed on Democracy Now.

Now this - funny + true.
