Famous last words from Judy Miller in her Senate testimony:
As I painfully learned while covering intelligence estimates of Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, we are only as good as our sources. If they are wrong, we will be wrong.
“Or if,” she might have added, “we are spun, spun, spun.” (“Miller’s sources weren’t just wrong, they spun her dizzy…,” Douglas McCollam writes in the Columbia Journalism Review.)
Judy’s defenders believe she’s being treated like a ragdoll (click for the demo). We disagree.
And just for the record, Cary Grant never said, “Judy, Judy, Judy.” He did say, “Susan, Susan, Susan.”
Postscript: Now, a day later, is there anything else to say but Bill, Bill, Bill?
