Arianna to Russert: Show me the proof!

Timmeh criticized Arianna in this USA Today article profiling the Huffington Post's one year anniversary.

"I've been attacked by Arianna the right-wing radical and Arianna the left-wing revolutionary," Russert says. "I guess the only constant in her life is she keeps watching Meet the Press."

Arianna isn't buying any of it and issued this challenge:

"Where are these attacks? I'd like Tim to tell me, because I never touched him before Russertwatch, which was launched when the Huffington Post was launched."

I seem to remember a certain time that Russert launched a smear campaign against her once before:

".....Washington bureau chief Tim Russert have astonishingly decided to get down and dirty, dredging up and faxing to at least one reporter a 12-year-old false claim that I hired a private detective to snoop on Russert's wife Maureen Orth while she was preparing a hit piece on me for Vanity Fair in 1994."

That charge was debunked by the ghost writer of the book that carried the charge. Yes Tim, let's see the proof. Meet up with Arianna over in Charlie Rose's neighborhood and come armed with some facts. You could even make it a pay-per-view event and donate the proceeds to charity.

Can you help us out?
