The End Of The New York Times?

Out on a limb speculation here. Complete bullshit off-the-cuff stuff. Discount greatly.

But:

What if it turns out that Judith Miller is not protecting any administration source, but another journalist, or her herself, or a Democratic source, or even Joe Wilson or Valerie Plame himself/herself...

....and the editors of the NY Times know this (usually anonymous sources have to be revealed to editors), and yet the New York Times continues to deliberately lie to the American people about facts it knows to be false?

The. End.

Gone.

It's such a high-stakes gamble, frought with likely disaster, as to make it very unlikely to be true.

But... they are arrogant.

But... they do think that everyone else is stupid.

But... they do believe their own hype, and may think they are untouchable, and get away with practically anything.

If Judith Miller's source is NOT an administration official, and the New York Times has continued running news articles and editorials suggesting, if not flat-out claiming, that Rove or Scooter Libby are the source for the alleged outing... fire sale on computers and printers at Herald Square.


And, Hey... I just find it strange that the New York Times would put "journalistic ethics" above finally bringing down its bete noir (bete noir is a French term meaning "black beet").

Possibly they're playing halvsies on this... they know it's an administration source, and they can't quite burn that source, so they just "speculate" in their editorials about what they actually know to be true-- i.e., someone in the Bush White House is dirty on this.

Maybe.

Or: Judtih Miller is sitting in jail because her testimony would actually exonerate the Bush Administration and destroy the New York Times as an institution.
