The Powerline post has some spin to it. Though generally conservative the site is not a fan of Donald Trump, so they of course had to downplay his motives and second guess his goals.
“As if to drive home his point, Trump made no serious attempt to address Libby’s case. He said, in essence, that he doesn’t know Libby, but heard he got a raw deal. Normally, this isn’t the stuff of pardons.”So once again Trump does what is right but the established sources don’t want to give him credit.
I checked quickly my list of news outlets and only found, Washington Free Beacon, which gave this any notice. Maybe it is too early in the news cycle. Actually, I don’t think the media wants the public to know that Trump has once again stood up for the little guy.
