Update to McGreevey-Lover Story

Yesterday I linked an account which reported the assertions of a college professor that the man McGreevey hit on had had a previous gay affair, and was therefore not straight, as he maintains.

Maybe I conceded that too soon.

Jeff Jarvis reports on the Daily News' follow-up article.

Jarvis discovers this college professor is less than credible:

In a manic, disjointed interview, Miller said that Cipel had made a pillow-talk confession: He still carries a torch for McGreevey....

Miller also claimed to reporters that he is a CIA operative who takes pills doled out by the intelligence agency to make his skin darker so he can infiltrate unnamed groups....

Miller - who insisted on speaking Spanish because, he said, he hates the United States...

"Despite his problems, I'm going to go visit him," said Miller, shirtless and wearing purple shorts....

The doctor said he was a happily married man with two children, when, at age 38, he acknowledged he was gay.

"One hundred thousand dollars worth of therapy later and I still don't understand," Miller said.

According to another account:

Last night, with his house surrounded by reporters, Miller spoke to the throng in only blue shorts and white socks, his hair disheveled.

At times cursing and erratic, he alternatively told scribes he would talk to them in Hungarian, Spanish or Hebrew.

"He's a little scattered," a relative member said.

Anyone care to guess at the last time the media dutifully reported an obvious maniac's delusions to the detriment of a liberal? And gave such obviously dubious claims front-page treatment?

How the fuck did these claims even get reported in the Daily News at all? Why did the first day's story -- blared on its front page -- run with his charges, while the fact that he's most likely a dangerous lunatic was saved for the second day's minor follow-up piece (not a front-page story, of course)?

Can they be more transparent?
