Reporter in CIA Leak Case Retires From New York Times (Michael Muskal, November 9, 2005, LA Times)

Judith Miller, the prize-winning journalist who went from media scapegoat to saint and back again for her reporting about the Iraq war and its aftermath, retired today from the New York Times, the newspaper announced.

Maureen Dowd and half the Times' staff will think her resignation is another blow against the Bush/ Rove/ Cheney/ Rumsfeld/ Condi-but-we-can't-really-include-her-out-loud-because-she's-a-black-woman war, slime, crimanally facist hate machine. Lots of late-night celebrating at fancy restaurants after the paper's put out this evening.

So does this make it more or less likely we'll ever find out what happened in the Plamegate affair?

Huh. Another unapologetic lifelong political liberal gets forced out by the media establishment. She already has the book deal-- is she the next Bernie Goldberg?

getting fired from the ny times (c. 2005) is like being kicked off the titanic (before it leaves dock).

Bill Keller and Jill Abramson think they are safe. They are not.

Judy Miller may be weird, but she is not Mary Mapes. And the Times is linked at the hip to Joe Wilson, who is about as credible as Bill Burkett (probably less, because ol' Bill could hide behind depression, while Wilson is going to hide behind what - his wives, his hair, his Jaguar?).

Ummmm...I hate to tell you, but Saddam DID have yellowcake. There were tons of it at the Al Tuwaitha facility.

P.S. I notice you had a discussion about my economic predictions for the 21st century a few months ago. Open up the discussion comments again, and I'll be happy to explain why y'all are completely wrong. But this post explains it:

I never listen to economic advice from someone who uses a phony "y'all" in print.

Well at least she was given a sabbatical before leaving.

"I never listen to economic advice from someone who uses a phony "y'all" in print."

Well, that's some top-notch economic analysis, Doctor Girlfriend. ;-)

I'm afraid you will have to use Mozilla Firefox. OJ and his brother have apparently attempted to sabotage the use of Internet Explorer regarding the use of copy/paste.
