“To show jurors that I. Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby is believable, attorneys for the former White House aide are trying to undercut the credibility of reporters from some of the nation’s largest media outlets,” the AP says.

“Libby’s attorneys were to resume questioning the memory and scruples of NBC News reporter Tim Russert on Thursday and have said their first batch of witnesses will all be journalists called to rebut other journalists…
