More about the Queen of all Iraq . . .

From an article in by Russ Baker:
While defending its own, the [New York Times] also has a larger responsibility—both to its readers and to journalism—not to serve as a propaganda organ, obscuring key unresolved questions about Miller, her work and this particular case.

Two weeks ago, as Miller went off to serve a likely four-month sentence at a federal detention center, a profile of her by a Times media writer almost cartoonishly obfuscated her crucial role in peddling war with Iraq through her series of completely wrong reports fed to her by sources closely tied to the very same White House figures at the heart of the Plame affair.

It's a good read for those interested in more about the subject of Don Shelby's op-ed piece, described in the last post.
