Judith Miller has, for better or for worse, displaced Karl Rove as the most discussed player in the Rovegate (where's the love... it's named after Karl for cryin' out loud). One of the two big additions to the puzzle this weekend came from a likely source, the American Prospect, and the other from a guest writer on a popular blog.
In this weekend's Prospect Murray Waas reports on prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's interest in a meeting between Scooter Libby and Judith Miller that took place just two days after Wilson published his op-ed debunking a Bush claim. Doesn't look very good for those who believe that Miller isn't quite the valiant journalist, taking one for the source-protecting team.
But for those who believe that Miller, as the recently touted theory goes, IS the source, Dan Balis brings you exhibits A, B, and C. Assembling information from the numerous -- and in some cases confoundingly dense -- stories recounting all the activities of the various players in the saga, Balis shows that it taxes credibility for Miller to have been THE source.
Good news is, this doesn't let Miller off the hook, it just removes this one possibility from the pile. And in a case like this, every little baby step helps. (Majikthise)
