Judy still doesn’t get it

Former New York Times reporter and consummate insider, Judith Miller, is still “sorry” about those “wrong” stories on Iraq, but defends her journalism:

“I am deeply sorry that the President was given a national intelligence estimate which concluded that Saddam Hussein had biological and chemical weapons and a active weapons programme.”

She says she checked claims about Iraq and WMD with so-called independent experts.

She can claim whatever she likes. She’s not a journalist, and neither is any insider who blindly prints government propaganda in times of war. Of course, it all depends on your definition of journalism. She’s not unlike Bob Woodward, the “dumb blonde of American journalism.”
