Cheney interview off limits-too good comic material.

At least no-one here has justified a Freedom of Information knock-back, on the basis of what the Chasers could do with it. According to AP:

"(US) Justice Department lawyers told the judge that future presidents and vice presidents may not cooperate with criminal investigations if they know what they say could become available to their political opponents and late-night comics who would ridicule them. "If we become a fact-finder for political enemies, they aren't going to cooperate," Justice Department attorney Jeffrey Smith said during a 90-minute hearing. "I don't want a future vice president to say, `I'm not going to cooperate with you because I don't want to be fodder for 'The Daily Show.'"

It didn't wash with the Judge, who wants better reasons.

Wait a moment-where did those script ideas for the Hollowmen come from?
