Judith Miller Redux

Boston Globe columnist Robert Kuttner just might have unravelled the mess that sent Judith Miller to jail and left Matt Cooper turning over his notes and testifying. It makes sense and I appreciate his humility.

I have received several "anonymous" comments from readers who are miffed that I have shown any kind of respect for Judith Miller and her plight. Listen, I know she fucked us all over with her toadying for the Bushies, but I want to see her punished for the crime she actually DID commit rather than serve an unjust sentence for something else.

Kuttner's analysis suggests that justice MAY in fact be served. READ IT!

Good for Kuttner coming to his senses...although he's waaaay behind the facts which have been out "there" for some time now. Look, Miller is a fraud. Rove & Co. are criminals. Let's just fact facts that the MSM is just not up to the task of actually doing investigations justice any more. They (newspapers, TV, radio, etc.)by-and-large, with few exceptions, are merely commercial enterprises and have nothing to do with the romantic versions so many people have of the media. PR is now part of the "reporters" job. Being invited to sit in the liars gallery in the White House, or report out RNC talking points, this is all they do anymore, with the occaional storm or disaster...
