Judy "neocon propaganda" Miller on Bloggers

Judy thinks she should be protected BUT not us:
"I'm worried about bloggers," she said. "(A post) starts as a rumor and within 24 hours it's repeated as fact."

While she advocates a federal shield law to protect mainstream journalists from divulging their sources, she doesn't favor extending that to bloggers who don't follow the standards and ethnics of the journalism industry.

Still, she wouldn't restrict a blogger's right to publish online. She said some bloggers have been invaluable in uncovering government flaws.

"I'm glad to welcome them as long as they agree to the standards," she said.

Bear in mind that this is the same Judy Miller that helped lie America into the Iraq war with her neocon propaganda pieces on WMD in the NY Times.

Considering her past digressions, and the integrity of her writings and sources, she should seriously consider using her keyboard as a paperweight for the sake of honest Americans AND Bloggers everywhere.

Does anyone take her seriously anymore? I thought she was the female Bob Novak.. to be ridiculed and dismissed.

she's an idiot.

now I have an urge to start a rumor about her, but the people that read my blog really only care about cats and gardening.

I heard a rumour that the cats are afraid to piss in Judy Miller's garden because they think she might have Iraq's WMDs hidden in her Aspen grove and they know she is crazy enough to use them.

Smart cats, eh? :}
