TRUTHDIGGER OF THE WEEK: PATRICK FITZGERALD

Truthdig tips its hat this week to Patrick J. Fitzgerald, whose talent for tackling high-stakes court cases without flinching or yielding to partisan pressures made him the ideal prosecutor for the I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby trial. Fitzgerald’s work in clinching Tuesday’s guilty verdict boosted his already stellar reputation, well established in his current hometown of Chicago as well as in international legal circles, into the realm of the legendary. More important, though, the Libby verdict sent a strong message to the media about the catastrophic costs of getting too cozy with the government they are supposed to scrutinize and may have marked the end of an era of media manipulation at the hands of a secretive and self-serving administration.
