Pot and Kettle: Miller Badmouthes Assange

Abby Zimet

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."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
