Fox News Hires Disgraced Reporter Judith Miller

Today, the Washington Post's Howard Kurtz reveals that Fox News has hired former New York Times reporter Judith Miller, who will be an on-air analyst and write stories for Fox's website:



"She has a very impressive résumé," says Senior Vice President John Moody. "We've all had stories that didn't come out exactly as we had hoped. It's certainly something she's going to be associated with for all time, and there's not much anyone can do about that, but we want to make use of the tremendous expertise she brings on a lot of other issues. ... She has explained herself and she has nothing to apologize for."

Miller, however, had more problems than her stories not turning out "exactly" as she had "hoped." Miller has been a willing participant in the Bush administration's quest to peddle lies to the American public. She was a key player in pushing false intelligence that led the public into the Iraq war, and was central to the Valerie Plame leak scandal.
