Judy Miller Gets The Boot

New York Times reporter Judy Miller has never been known as a retiring sort. However, yesterday, the paper announced that Miller had reached an agreement to end her 28-year career at the NYT.

Steve Gilliard seizes upon this passage from the Times article:


Ms. Miller originally demanded that she be able to write an essay for the paper's Op-Ed page challenging the allegations against her. The Times refused that demand - Gail Collins, editor of the editorial page, said, "We don't use the Op-Ed page for back and forth between one part of the paper and another" - but agreed to let her write the letter.
Steve surmises, "What she really said in newspaperese is "there is no way that fucking bitch is going on my fucking pages. I carried enough water for the bitch. No fucking more."

He goes on, "Gail Collins looks like your mom, but she's tough as nails when it counts. Like when she stopped King Rudy in his tracks when he wanted to stay on three more months after the election. I have to believe she got tough here as well."
