One more L.A. Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:
It’s a crying shame that in a democracy, a journalist can be jailed for failing to reveal a source. But [Judith] Miller isn’t the best person to make this point.
When the Bush administration was stirring up public support for an unnecessary and ultimately disastrous war, Miller acted as an agent of disinformation for the White House, writing stories based on lies published in the New York Times about Iraq’s nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.
This is not journalism, and Miller is not a journalist, any more than her employer, Fox News, is a news organization.
