Chandra Levy’s killer was given a 60-year prison term today.
She was a Capitol Hill intern and her killing was a media sensation until it wasn’t anymore.
Who killed her?
a) Rep. Gary Condit
b) Ingmar Guandique
If you guessed “b,” you probably didn’t pay much attention to the news coverage, which determined that Condit — no saint, here — probably did it. Except he didn’t.
It took the Washington Post to do the job should’ve done, and reported the story the way the media should’ve reported it. As it turned out, the cops were being pushed by the media; the tail was wagging the dog.
