The controversy regarding the "firing" of the U.S. Attorneys, and the role played by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales remains in the news. The Washington Post, for example, reports that President Bush continues to support the Attorney General. This same article, however, spends time discussing comments by Senate members on the benefits of replacing Gonzales.
Initially this entire matter was a front page story. It then moved to page two. Now we are finding this article on page three of the Washington Post. But this less visible placement may be a function of the competing news in recent days.
