Emailing Karl Rove

In a U.S. House of Representatives committee report investigating the White House's media management efforts over the death of Pat Tillman and the rescue of Jessica Lynch noted that journalists, including Noonan, had made suggestions on how to manage the story. The draft report stated that:

"For example, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan e-mailed the White House’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, Peter Wehner, recommending that he "find out what faith Tillman practiced and have the president go by that church and light a candle or say a prayer."[2]
