Self serving anti-Bush Times editors leave reporter Miller "twisting in the wind" and
Oh the webs we weave when we first use liberal media to deceive ...

Addressing his staff via e-mail last Friday, New York Times executive editor Bill Keller separated himself from Judith Miller with surgical precision. He wrote that had he known a year ago what he knows now—i.e., that Miller was a Bush administration tool (in his words, “that Judy had been one of the reporters on the receiving end of the anti-Wilson whisper campaign”)—he would have been more inclined to sell her out long ago to special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.

A day later, in one of the more unseemly displays of piling on that dogpile I can recall, Maureen Dowd used her op-ed column to complain that Miller was prone to big-footing her colleagues and had a reputation for using what might generously be described as unconventional journalistic techniques to nail her stories. Miller, Dowd warned, is a moral threat to newspapering in general and the Times in particular. Putting aside the column’s garment-rending sanctimony, none of this was exactly revelatory.

Ultimately Calame joined the Miller pile-on dogpile and, in the end, let those responsible for her supervision off the hook. So Bill Keller was shocked, shocked to learn that Judy Miller had an agenda that might not actually have been the same as that of the institution paying her salary. Gosh, how the heck was he supposed to have known that?

Only under the umbrella of the Bush Cabal has the NYT ever been considered a liberal newspaper. I guess they just can´t take the heat.
