Judy Miller Lied to Her Boss as Well as the World
By Elaine Meinel Supkis
Miss Run Amok, Judith Miller of the New York Times has been forced by the prosecutor in the Plame affair to admit she lied to her bosses at the Times about her involvement in this crime. The owner and his editor refuse to believe she did anything that bad, she merely has a bad memory.
From the Associated Press:
Judith Miller's boss says the New York Times reporter appears to have misled the newspaper about her role in the CIA leak controversy."Seems to have misled"? Talk about a wienie whinny way of saying, "She lied her ass off." The word "seems" make it sound as if one needs several perspectives about this. Like, maybe it was sort of not lying but just appeared to some wayward minds as lies. Heh. Depends on what is isn't.
In an e-mail memo Friday to the newspaper's staff, Executive Editor Bill Keller said that until Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald subpoenaed Miller in the criminal probe, "I didn't know that Judy had been one of the reporters on the receiving end" of leaks aimed at Bush administration critic Joseph Wilson.
"Judy seems to have misled" Times Washington bureau chief Bill Taubman about the extent of her involvement, Keller wrote.
Taubman asked Miller in the fall of 2003 whether she was among the reporters who had gotten leaks about the identity of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame.
"Misled" is also a bizarre way to describe open lying. It seems 90% of whatever she reports on is just so many rank lies, no? Indeed, the only place her reporting could appear truthful is in Neoconland.
In response, Miller told the Times that Keller's memo was "seriously inaccurate," the newspaper said in a story for Saturday editions. It reported that in a memo to Keller, Miller wrote she "never meant to mislead Phil (Taubman), nor did I mislead him."Judy is hoping her faulty memory could be used as an excuse. From day one, I was all ears on the Valerie Plame business because she did what my mom used to do and it is very dangerous work, overseas. I forgot nothing about that case from day one. Judy claiming that she, in the very dark heart of this conspiracy to destroy a CIA agent, has a faulty memory about this matter, pisses me off.
The New York Times can hire me to replace her. I know how to write. And I am just as biased, heh. So why not, Keller? You know where I am and my name. The editorial staff and I have chatted more than once!
As for Keller's remark about "my `entanglement' with Mr. Libby, I had no personal, social, or other relationship with him except as a source," Miller wrote.Prostitutes don't think going to bed with their Johns is social. It is pure business. Happy to see she keeps up her standards!
Of course, Judy doesn't talk about those mysterious aspen roots connecting her to her right wing buddies.
Others are in hot water, too. Tim Russert of MSNBC's Meet the Preesitutes, is part of this probe. Like Judy, he lied about his level of involvement. He knew from day one who was leaking the CIA agent's name and he remained silent. The Silence of the Lions here is not surprising. Like all hyper-criminal organizations, the American media has been colluding with the rulers to lie, cheat and steal. They pretend to be enlightening us while really shoving shit. They lie because they have goals and desires which require fooling people into supporting their campaigns.
These con men and con women work with the top cons, the neo cons in the GOP. They are all war criminals. They have directly contributed to the deaths of thousands and tousands of people, they have destroyed our defenses, they are bankrupting our country and meanwhile, every blasted one of them remains at large, on TV and in print, their vulture voices bellowing across the land, lying and lying.
The media liars will now switch gears and attack their buddies so long as we, their sheep, don't punish them for their crimes. They hope we will forget what they did in the past even as they try desperately to forget their own crimes. But alas for them, there are thousands of bloggers keeping track of all this and exposing the lies. This case, the Plame investigation, is very important because it lances into the heart of the conspiracy against America. It isn't uncovering the greater crimes, how the media colluded with Bush to steal two elections, but it hits on the same cast of criminals.
Put them in prison. Put all of them in prison. Send them to the Hague to stand trial. Put them on trial in Bagdad.
