Is the pressure starting to get to Covert CIA Operative Outter Bob Novak?

For reasons we can't entirely explain, Novak just said "Bullshit" live on the air on CNN and then walked off the set.

The host for the segment said that Novak knew in advance he was going to be asked about the outing of covert CIA asset, Valerie Plame. Apparently, he never got the chance. Here's the video...

UPDATE: AP has just reported that CNN has suspended Novak "indefinitely" after today's bizarre episode!

A CNN spokeswoman, Edie Emery, called Novak's behavior "inexcusable and unacceptable." Novak has apologized to CNN, and CNN apologizes to viewers, she said.

"We've asked Mr. Novak to take some time off," she said.
Only two weeks ago, CNN executives defended their decision to keep Novak on the air during the ongoing probe into the revelation of CIA officer Valerie Plame's identity.

ANOTHER UPDATE: In a newspaper column today, Sen. Arlen Specter accuses Novak of defamation in a completely different matter. It was not a good day for The Prince of Darkness...
