Judith Miller not hopeful for FoxNews.com reporter facing jail time for not revealing source

Source: Fox News (not The Onion)

“I had a very similar situation to Jana’s,” Miller said Monday. “Jana broke a very important story in this case, but nevertheless I was faced with the same choice and I made the same decision that she seems to be making.”

“If we’re dependent on what the government tells us, the public never really gets to know what it needs to know about a situation,” Miller said. “And we can’t do our jobs without investigative reporting. That is, without going out and talking to people whom perhaps the government doesn’t want us to talk to, to give the public the full story, which is very much what Jana did and I tried to do.”

Miller continued: “But if we don’t have that personal relationship and a relationship of trust with our sources, people won’t tell us things, because they really are risking their careers when they tell us something that perhaps the government doesn’t want us to know.”

"similar situation" ...???? REALLY?!?!? ....You didn't break any story you filed their talking points and got them onto the NY stinkin' TIMES above the fold. "the government doesn’t want us to talk to" -- THE GOVERNMENT WAS WHO YOU WERE WORKING FOR!!!

"personal relationship'?

“You went into jail in the summer. It is fall now. You will have stories to cover — Iraqi elections and suicide bombers, biological threats and the Iranian nuclear program. Out west, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them. Come back to work — to life.”
--Scooter Libby's love letter to Judith Miller

1. Irony is not only dead. It's becoming a health hazard.

Someone should remove the corpse.

2. FOX actually puts Miller on their media ethics show

I think the entire point of FOX is to punish viewers for knowing anything

5. It has been on air for years and it goes like this...

..." why are they giving Bush such a hard time in the media?" and "Why are they not giving Obama a harder time on this?".

4. Judith Miller

 

I think I'd get insta-banned if I described her, using the right words.

6. Only Fixed News would prop up a tool who should be taking a very LOW profile.

“And we can’t do our jobs without investigative reporting. That is, without going out and talking to people whom perhaps the government doesn’t want us to talk to, to give the public the full story, which is very much what Jana did and I tried to do.”






Their major problem is that most of us aren't as stupid as they obviously think we are.

“You went into jail in the summer. It is fall now. You will have stories to cover — Iraqi elections and suicide bombers, biological threats and the Iranian nuclear program. Out west, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them. Come back to work — to life.”


(My) Translation:

You went into jail in the summer. It is fall now: You'll be getting out of jail soon; stick it out because... You will have stories to cover — Iraqi elections and suicide bombers, biological threats and the Iranian nuclear program...and we're counting on your high-profile standing to deliver our neocon messaging when you get out. Don't blow it by naming any names. Out west, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them. Come back to work — to life: The neocon cabal has wined & dined you. They are deeply connected & will toe the line if they are betrayed. Don't talk -- & you'll live.

12. At the end of each day, she has to keep telling herself lies to sleep at night...

and hopefully at some point, it will eventually catch up to here.

You know in that war criminal accessory store of way.
