Judith Miller Speaks

There are two sides to every story. Judith Miller has created a website with her letter to the New York Times as well as a response to Maureen Dowd's column.

[hat tip Raw Story.] You can also read her letter here at the New York Times website. Jane at FiredogLake provides analysis.

Something I just noticed: The article at the Times website about Miller's departure from the paper is headlined, "Reporter Agrees to Leave Paper." That is a further slam to Miller in that it implies she was asked to leave and agreed. If the departure was her idea, wouldn't the headline simply read "Reporter Leaves Paper"? Kathryn Seelye who wrote the article may not have written the headline, but still, shouldn't someone have noticed this? I bet Judith Miller will.

    I must confess that I acted as a lowlife this evening and use the contact form at her website to send her a very polite FU letter.... I am just not a good person.

    it's my impression that it wasn't ms. miller's idea to leave, it was the paper's. therefore, the title would be appropriate. unless you have some evidence to the contrary. judy miller has turned into the terrell owens of the nyt.
