NO one was charged with outing Plame. The only charge was lying to a FBI agent.
You cannot rewrite what the charges were.
Plame was a Washington party girl who was widely known to be a CIA analyst and was never a "secret agent".....

Yes, the IRS outlining who should be targeted probably means nothing. You need to step away from your partisan sites. Even the MSM isn't dumb enough to repeat this lack of logic by Media Matters.
so has the MSM taken up the FOX drumbeat?

the right wing nutjobs sites are not the MSM.

Bill Maher challenges Republicans: Impeach Obama ‘so he can kick your ass a third time’

Bill Maher closed Real Time on Friday by throwing a serious —“Rob Ford in rehab” serious, even — challenge to the Republican Party, daring conservatives to follow through on their threat to impreach President Barack Obama over the fatal September 2012 U.S. consulate bombing in Benghazi, Libya.

“When the Republicans impeached [Bill] Clinton, his approval ratings shot up 10 [percentage] points, to 73,” Maher argued.“Obama’s approval is at 41. He could use a little of that impeachment mojo. So go ahead, haters. Make Benghazi your big issue, please. Put Barack Obama back on the ballot in 2014, so he can kick your ass a third time.”

The fact that Republicans are seizing on the attack as a talking point again, Maher said, meant that the Affordable Care Act (commonly known as “Obamacare”) was working.

“Logic, however, not as much,” Maher said.“Because if you ask [conservatives] to explain what the Benghazi crime is, they still can’t. It’s just some blather about ‘Don’t you see? If it was terrorists, instead of what he said, act of terror, then Obama is weak and Mitt Romney gets to be retroactive president.’”

But logical arguments don’t matter in today’s GOP, Maher explained, attributing their rhetoric to the party catching syphilis in 1994, leaving it untreated and reducing it to “the drooling and frothing stage today.”

“It’s like trying to relate to someone who’s tripping when you’re not,” Maher said.“Sorry, we don’t see the spiders.”

With an adult-styled round-table political-news discussion, participants can discuss and/or argue their interpretation of facts and factual events.

On Progressive Comedy channels, hosts create Straw Men and then poke them with Funny Sticks. Unthinking Juvenile audiences roar with laughter.

That's where the money is today - Straw Man Comedy.

Witness the USS Cole that happened under Clinton. He provided bushie boy with whatever intel he had before leaving office. And what did he do with it?
nothing..........
“In 1998,” said Hillary Clinton,“Congress concluded that Iraq’s continuing weapons of mass destruction programs threatened vital United States interests and international peace and security, declared Iraq to be in ‘material breach of its international obligations’ and urged the President ‘to take appropriate action, in accordance with the Constitution and relevant laws of the United States, to bring Iraq into compliance with its international obligations."

October 10, 2002.“Authorization for the Use of Military Force Against Iraq.” It concluded:“The President is authorized to use the Armed Forces of the United States as he determines necessary in order to (1) defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq; and (2) enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council resolution regarding Iraq.”

I think you areconfusing Fox news with the comedy channel.

Since you obvioous don't watch either Jon Stewart or the Colbert report, I'll explain how it works. The get actual video of conservatives and teabaggers lying, spouting BS, being hypocrites and contradicting themselves, you know evidence to support their point

now on fox news you get a bunch of idiots sitting on a couch, making accusations and congratulating each other, all without any evidence to support their views

A political blogger allegedly breaking into the nursing home where the wife of Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) lives to take her photograph is one of the more repulsive political stories in some time. And once the accused was linked to the tea party insurgent challenging Cochran in the GOP primary, establishment types leapt.

The blogger, Clayton Thomas Kelly, 28, has been an outspoken supporter of challenger State Sen. Chris McDaniel -- going so far as to wonder if he could be the next Rand Paul -- while consistently criticizing Cochran. That meant that his alleged transgressions immediately took center stage in what might be the most bitter Republican primary this cycle.

Explicitly and implicitly, establishment Republican operatives tied Kelly to McDaniel.

"My only response would be that it's disgusting and inhuman," Brad Dayspring, spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, told TPM in an email. "For weeks, the attacks lobbed toward Senator Cochran have been ugly, and there seems to be no boundary that they won't cross."

The McDaniel campaign quickly sought to distance itself from Kelly, asserting that the blogger had "no relationship" while it released a sympathetic statement from McDaniel toward the Cochrans.

"I've reached out to Senator Cochran directly to express my abhorrence for the reprehensible actions of this individual," McDaniel said. "This criminal act is deeply offensive and my team and I categorically reject such appalling behavior."

But separating McDaniel from Kelly could prove more difficult than a simple statement. Though a campaign spokesman told the Clarion-Ledger, which broke the story, that he had "never even heard (Kelly's) name," one of the blog posts on Kelly's website is titled "I Met MS Senator Chris McDaniel" and features what seems to be a picture with McDaniel and Kelly.

GOP operatives also pointed to a YouTube video of Kelly's that appears to feature a one-on-one interview with McDaniel. McDaniel, for his part, told The Hill that he had met Kelly, but didn't know him.

There is no certain evidence that the McDaniel campaign coordinated with Kelly or knew of his break-in, but other Republican establishment types -- former aides for Mitt Romney, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and the NRSC -- still berated the pair on Twitter. And Dayspring tweeted nuggets of the McDaniel campaign's confused response and alleged inconsistencies in its version of events.
