    NEW YORK – The timing could hardly be better. “News War” is a “Frontline” probe into the modern Fourth Estate, embattled from many directions. And, by chance, it coincides with the imminent conclusion to a Washington free-for-all that has ensnared the news media: the perjury trial of former vice presidential aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby.
