Attack of the Killer MS Flacks Has anyone seemed to notice that shortly after the Wall Street Journal broke the story about the Microsoft hackers that the NYT became a voice for MS when they first claimed that no source code was stolen and next when they seemed to remember they tracked the entire attack for all 12 days.

I think it's a combination of Markoff/Schwartz poo-pooing that they didn't get the story first and that MS didn't call them when they found out the Journal was doing a story and give the NYT their version....but also that there's rumors flying and more to the story than we may know.
