Reconstructing Judith Miller

The Union Editorial Board. Reporter's jailing shows need for a shield law, July 9, 2005
Judith Miller, a reporter for the New York Times, sits in a jail cell today for refusing to reveal a source for a story that she did not write.
If it were anyone but Judith Miller, I might feel prone to some sympathy. Miller wrecked her reputation for honest reporting by hyping Saddam’s WMDs, then passing the whole mess off by claiming it was her sources that were wrong. She did a great disservice to her readers and her sources. No protection for these sources. Now she is trying to repair her reputation by refusing to give up her sources on the Plame affair, for a story she did not write Hummm.
