The truth about Rove and Miller

"Not everyone in the Times building is on the same page when it comes to Judy Miller. The official story the paper is sticking to is that Miller is a heroic martyr, sacrificing her freedom in the name of journalistic integrity," writes Arianna Huffington.

"But a very different scenario is being floated in the halls." Arianna has a new theory as to why Judith Miller doesn't want to reveal her source that fits in alarmingly well with her reckless prewar reporting. She speculates that it's split the Times staff into camps that either can or can't handle the truth:

"So, once again, the question arises (and you can't have it both ways, Frank [Rich]): when it comes to this scandal, do you want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth or do you want the truth -- except for what Judy Miller wants to keep to herself?" Find out just what this truth is... (Huffington)
