Judith Miller No More

A sad ending to an illustrious career. Judith Miller went from hero and champion of journalistic integrity, to a shunned journalist that lost the respect of her own paper. Not that I feel any sympathy toward her. I was one of those that felt, before I knew all the facts, she was doing something very honorable in going to jail to protect a source in the CIA leak investigation. Funny how fast my opinion of her changed after all the facts of her involvement in the case came out. Miller not only tarnished the reputation of the New York Times, but she also tainted the reputation of all journalists by bedding the White House and serving as a conduit for misinformation leading up to the Iraq war. She used the reputation of The New York Times to make a compelling argument for war that ultimately benefit the White House tremendously. The idea being that if The New York Times, a left leaning paper, said the right wing White House had a compelling reason to go to war, then it must be true. She abused her position and prostituted her profession to get inside information that was manipulated and used one of the most influencial mediums to affect public opinion. Good riddance!
