Bob Woodward on Larry King Tonight

Larry King‘s role in this new Bob Woodward scandal is fascinating. Woodward’s appearances on Larry King Live — and easy access to the transcripts of those appearances — has raised the temperature of the already-hot water Woodward is in.

On Sunday, the Washington Post’s ombudsman said commenting on the Valerie Plame investigation “without disclosing his early knowledge of Plame’s identity” was a “journalistic sin.” On Reliable Sources, David Gergen said Woodward’s “second mistake” was “going on television in this really uncomfortable situation and not disclosing.”

So what is Woodward going to do about it? He’s going to appear on Larry King Live tonight in an exclusive interview. I hope it lives up to CNN’s billing: “What he knew, when he knew it and why he stayed silent for almost two years.”
