Judith Miller, the former New York Times reporter whose lies and half-truths on WMDs helped lead us into Iraq, had the audacity to blast Julian Assange as "a bad journalist" because he didn't adequately verify his information "or determine whether or not it would hurt anyone" before publishing the Wikileaks cables. Stunning hypocrisy. These days she practises it at Fox News and the loony right-wing rag NewsMax. More on her well-deserved fall from grace  here.

"My job isn't to assess the government's information and be an independent intelligence analyst myself. My job is to tell readers of The New York Times what the government thought about Iraq's arsenal."
