NY Times Reporter Confronts Judith Miller: 'Your Stories Were Wrong'

NY Times Reporter Confronts Judith Miller: 'Your Stories Were Wrong'
Former New York Times reporter Judith Miller appeared on Morning Joe Monday morning to defend her coverage in the run-up to the Iraq War, arguing there was a consensus at the time around the existence of WMDs and that the Grey Lady had made her a scapegoat.

Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial—but Democracy and freedom in a strictly Pickwickian sense. Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit. – Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited, published 1958

Abortion: #1 To GOP
When it came to his plans to back a controversial abortion bill, Sen. Lindsey Graham showed no signs of skittishness before a crowd of conservative activists Thursday:

"I am dying to have this debate" the South Carolina Republican and potential presidential candidate said.

A House version of the proposal – a federal ban on abortions after 20 weeks – became mired in controversy before an embarrassed leadership had to pull it from the floor.
