The headline at CNN is Scooter Skates.
The headline at MSNBC is No Prison.
The story at McClatchy reads:
President Bush commuted the sentence of former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby Monday, keeping him from serving a two-and-a-half year prison term meted out in the CIA leak case.
Calling the sentence “excessive,” Bush’s last minute commutation came after a federal court refused to allow Libby to remain free pending the appeal of his perjury conviction. Libby, who was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice in the CIA leak case still faces a $250,000 fine.
