Still a grotesque disgrace

I continue to find the NY Times' behavior in the Judy Miller affair unfathomable. The difference between Judy Miller and Jayson Blair is analogous to the difference between an axe murderer and a jaywalker.

UPDATE: Here's something interesting from the Washington Post:

Craig Pyes, a former contract writer for the Times who teamed up with Miller for a series on al Qaeda, complained about her in a December 2000 [!!!!!] memo to Times editors and asked that his byline not appear on one piece.

"I'm not willing to work further on this project with Judy Miller," wrote Pyes, who now writes for the Los Angeles Times. He added: "I do not trust her work, her judgment, or her conduct. She is an advocate, and her actions threaten the integrity of the enterprise, and of everyone who works with her . . . She has turned in a draft of a story of a collective enterprise that is little more than dictation from government sources over several days, filled with unproven assertions and factual inaccuracies," and "tried to stampede it into the paper."
