Big Tim took to the airwaves today to deliver his own particular brand of political salve to the abrupt Goss announcement.  As Christy mentioned this morning, Russert has been assuring America that the White House has known about this for weeks, and Goss has been talking with Negroponte about it for a while.

As Emptywheel points out in the comments, nobody seems to have told this to Goss.  From his statement:

This morning, I notified the President that I will be stepping aside as Director of CIA.

Hey Tim, you want to check on that one and get back to us?
