Vanity Fair is set to unravel more of the Judith Miller saga in their January
edition (on sale December 13). According to Editor and Publisher the piece “reveals

I have heard of being an embedded reporter but it seems that Miller may have
been in-bed-ed. The New York Times should start looking at all of Miller’s past
work and go over her foot steps to make sure she hasn’t mislead the readers of
the NYT anymore than known.
If it is true that Miller slept with her sources in exchange for stories then
it is the same as prostitution. The White House utilized Miller to promote their
propaganda on Iraq. Couple this with the escapades of Jeff Gannon and it makes
it sound like the press is an open orgy for the White House. If Clinton was
sitting in the oval office right now, you can be certain there would be a new
round of congressional inquiries. The Christian right should start questioning
Bush and his administrations dealings with people of this nature.
