Judith Miller's Tenure at the Times May Be History
Byron Calame, Public Editor for the New York Times, retraces the Times' misteps in the Judith Miller - Scooter Libby mess. He ends with this paragraph about her future prospects at the Times, that includes a quote from Times Publisher Arther Sulzberger:
What does the future hold for Ms. Miller? She told me Thursday that she hopes to return to the paper after taking some time off. Mr. Sulzberger offered this measured response: "She and I have acknowledged that there are new limits on what she can do next." It seems to me that whatever the limits put on her, the problems facing her inside and outside the newsroom will make it difficult for her to return to the paper as a reporter.
I’m assuming that neither this memo -- nor Calame’s critique -- will put this story to bed. Not by a long shot. I’m assuming, as I’ve been saying for months, that this ends up going all the way to Sulzberger.
Another excellent read on the Times and Miller: NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen.
