Disgraced Iraq-Enabling Reporter Judith Miller Winds Up At Newsmax

by Jack Stuef

You know what they do with people like her in prison? Yoga.Judith Miller was once an important war reporter person at The New York Times, but then she was sent to jail. But not for writing up fake stories about weapons of mass destruction that helped the Bush administration wage an illegal war! No, it was because she protected Scooter Libby’s telling her the name of Valerie Plame, another person from that decade. Anyway, Miller has finally found an actual journalism job, and it’s with Newsmax, which is rather hilarious, because that’s not really quite journalism, especially for a former Times reporter. Let us look at the stupid e-mails those people have sent us recently and use them to make fun of her.

Here are some subject lines from the past few weeks:

1 ‘Weird’ Trick of a Tiny Belly?

Exposed: Stop Wearing Glasses; Restore Your Eyesight Without Surgery?

Ronald Reagan’s 100th Birthday Fast Approaching

Is Your Prostate Keeping You Up at Night?

The Jesus Question: Will He Ever Return?

Rub it on Anywhere it Hurts and Feel the Difference – Within Minutes

Mike Huckabee Says Veto-Proof Repeal Possible!

Palin Tells Barbara Walters: I Read Newsmax

Congrats to Judith Miller, who will now report whatever the acai berries tell her to write. [Weigel]

Makin' shit up = no need to protect sources.

Sophist FCD December 29, 2010 at 3:11 pm

Hey, if Judith Miller didn't protect her sources so zealously then the voices in her head might be too scared to come forward.

x111e7thst December 29, 2010 at 1:54 pm

Bitch. Just die already.

ManchuCandidate December 29, 2010 at 1:55 pm

I'd rather see that bitch rot in jail, but working for the intertubes version of the Newsletter for Retards, Newsmax, is a close second.

Not_So_Much December 29, 2010 at 2:28 pm

Well, if she's a real journalist, let's send her into the Kandahar war zone with just a notebook, a pencil and a jar of petroleum jelly and see what kind of hard-hitting story she produces.

Rotundo_ December 29, 2010 at 6:55 pm

Damn, I'll swear there is a polka tune by that name, if there isn't, there really should be one. Play it right after "She's too fat for me." or something like it. The olds would get a kick out of it.

slappypaddy December 29, 2010 at 1:57 pm

looks like a step up in the world for her. before you know it, she might move on to something worthwhile, such as washing cars or watching paint dry.

cheaphits December 29, 2010 at 1:57 pm

Can NYT give you a tiny belly, bring Jesus back or rub it anywhere it hurts?

I think not.

Sophist FCD December 29, 2010 at 3:36 pm

No, but it can wrap a fish like nobody's business. Lets see new media do that!

Dimitrios_M December 29, 2010 at 5:35 pm

New media can stick it where the sun don't shine with a lot less pain than the NYT.

donner_froh December 29, 2010 at 1:57 pm

Weigel: "Miller's latest story for Newsmax marks a return to the men-in-danger-at-the-outskirts-of-American-empire reporting she used to do for the Times."

Miller must be buying that Rub it on Anywhere it Hurts stuff by the 55 gallon drum to make pain from that go away.

I like the idea of Judith Miller working the prostate/rub-it-on-anywhere beat. She has found a good home.

rub it on your prostate and feel the difference!

Troubledog December 29, 2010 at 2:00 pm

This is the best patronage gig she could get after going to jail for Scooter?

V572625694 December 29, 2010 at 2:05 pm

Plus it's pretty certain Scooter was hitting that. They each took one for the team.

horsedreamer_1 December 29, 2010 at 3:26 pm

Scoot, Scoot, in the poopchute!

Beowoof December 29, 2010 at 7:26 pm

I don't know doing Scooter seems beyond taking one for the team, you would think they would have given her the 5AM show on Fox for that.

Jason_inthe_Peg December 29, 2010 at 3:18 pm

No shit. That sort of thing must leave a mark. Good thing they've got something at Newsmax to rub on the pain.

Hope the jail time was worth it.

V572625694 December 29, 2010 at 2:00 pm

The Jesus Question: will He ever return?

Uh, no, being as how he's dead, if he ever lived. You're welcome!

genxr December 29, 2010 at 2:10 pm

Also, horses.

V572625694 December 29, 2010 at 2:11 pm

That bible: so right about so many things! For instance this part:

Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves' eyes within thy locks: thy hair is as a flock of goats, that appear from mount Gilead.
Thy teeth are like a flock of sheep that are even shorn, which came up from the washing; whereof every one bear twins, and none is barren among them.
Thy lips are like a thread of scarlet, and thy speech is comely: thy temples are like a piece of a pomegranate within thy locks.
Thy neck is like the tower of David builded for an armoury, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men.
Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies.

Not_So_Much December 29, 2010 at 2:30 pm

You had me at "behold".

SheriffRoscoe December 29, 2010 at 2:46 pm

So he's saying she's got the neck of a shot putter? That's not very nice.

V572625694 December 29, 2010 at 2:57 pm

Gotta admit the praise in this little fever dream is a bit eccentric.

So basically the author of Song Of Solomon wanted to fuck Noah's Ark?

Teeth like a flock of sheep. That's my Judith.

SorosBot December 29, 2010 at 2:41 pm

And the Bible says that Jesus' return will bring about the fall of the Roman Empire; considering that the Visigoths and Vandals already took care of that that's gonna be a little tricky.

chickensmack December 29, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Jesus did that. Just because he SPOKED it, it HAPPENT.

Newsmax = new media, allows shortcut and paste, for example:

Barbara Walters Exposed Prostate Proof

and my favorite – Rub it on Palin at Night Without Surgery

SecretMuslin December 29, 2010 at 2:04 pm

You know you've reached the top of the journalism mountain when yours is the only "journalism" that Sarah Palin reads. Congrats Judy!!

SorosBot December 29, 2010 at 2:42 pm

No, she reads all of 'em.

slithytoves December 29, 2010 at 2:06 pm

Why is she squinting so hard? Is the light of truth too much for her or has Jesus come, yet?

OneDollarJuana December 29, 2010 at 2:15 pm

Jesus has come, and she's waiting for it to hit her face.

VespulaMaculata December 29, 2010 at 2:07 pm

Hey if Spitzer can have a TV show, and Diaperman is still a senator, who's expecting Miller to hang her head in shame?

neiltheblaze December 29, 2010 at 2:08 pm

What? I thought that even in the journalistic free fall she finds herself in Miller would have landed at the Moonie Times first – before the crack-whoredom that is working for Newsmax would be necessary. Guess she's damaged goods, even for the Reverend's fishwrap.

horsedreamer_1 December 29, 2010 at 3:28 pm

She should have pulled a David Brock & gone left.

In fact, why didn't Media Matters for America give Judy a blog?

slithytoves December 29, 2010 at 2:08 pm

No, someone else's is.

They must be using the dog-aging algorithm to measure this. Otherwise, it's not approaching faster than anything else.

Hmm, she was an accomplice in mass murder, and she has gone to Newsmax. Does this mean the Aspens turn together, and when the cock crows thrice, the blind beggar shall stumble?

Newsmax is too good for her.
Ouch. It hurt to write that.

Oblios_Cap December 29, 2010 at 2:20 pm

Newsmax, the conservative web and print venture founded in 1998 by Christopher Ruddy and built into a multi-million dollar company.

Newsmax is a multi-million dollar company? Does that mean they're losing millions of dollars a year? Geez, Palin must really be living large if there are that many Stupidz out there.

weejee December 29, 2010 at 2:21 pm

How does Miller's fellow Manhattan Instituttifrutti fellow Dame Peggy Noonerton feel about Judy joining Newzmaxx? Are Dame Peggy's past particles all aglow?

But when ya get down to it, isn't Newzmaxx just a dumbed-down Mad Maxesque bulletin board?

Radiotherapy December 29, 2010 at 2:21 pm

A willowy wispy blond she was,
A gussied up bombshell.
Billion dollars a month they spent,
A poignant story to sell.

aqua_buddha December 29, 2010 at 2:22 pm

Aspens turn, Judy spins, Bush has a bestseller.
Slam dunk, name your meme.

Everything turns out okay in the end.

Barrelhse December 29, 2010 at 10:17 pm

Is that a haiku, or is it a koan?

aqua_buddha December 29, 2010 at 11:38 pm

It's a koanza, special for the season.

Judy, Judy, wasn't she the one with the silver bullet ?
Maybe it's all to do with werewolves or something ..?

Crikey. That is way too much insight into the minds of these nutters.

Beowoof December 29, 2010 at 7:54 pm

is Whiskey on that list of superfoods. I signed up for Newsmax to find out what the other side was thinking, a short time after looking at some of the stories I concluded there was little thinking and lots of bs ing going on; which means Judith Miller will fit right in with the news max stable.

Monsieur_Grumpe December 29, 2010 at 2:24 pm

I'm wondering what to do for Raygun's 100th birthday.
Kicking some poor people in the teeth would be appropriate but that's not my style.

Which is more embarrassing, the reporter who used to work for the prestigious New York Times winding up at trashy Newsmax, or pure conservative Newsmax hiring someone who used to work for the liberal New York Times? I can already imagine the angry letters from readers threatening to cancel their subscriptions, to the Internet.

Pop_Socket December 29, 2010 at 2:30 pm

NewsMax exists to give Faux News legitimacy for its "far and balanced" claim by being so unbalanced so as to be completely unhinged.

Dick Cheney, editor-in-chief of Guns and Ammo magazine.

Yes – I am confused!

AtlanticCapers December 29, 2010 at 4:48 pm

The funny thing: Hiring a totally discredited reporter will greatly bolster the journalistic integrity of Newsmax.

BarackMyWorld December 29, 2010 at 4:55 pm

The article link "The Jesus Question: Will He Ever Return?" should lead to a webpage composed of "NO" written over and over in all-caps.

Just imagine the mortification she must endure, deep within her soul, knowing how far she's sunk. I wonder if she introduces herself as "Hi, Judith Miller, with the Newmumblemumble…"

This almost makes up for Ken Lay dying during appeal, thus erasing his conviction. Almost.

Rotundo_ December 29, 2010 at 7:11 pm

I love this photo of her: Either someone just passed a brimstone burrito bomb in her general direction or they just showed Judy her new office, either way, that expression will be permanently etched into her face and soul if she posesses one.

Troubledog December 29, 2010 at 8:08 pm

I'd like to mount her Pulitzer on the end of this cordless Sawzall.

Well, it looks like it's actually a medallion. It was a nice idea though.

Justice will not be served until Tom Friedman is exclusive with World Net Daily.

DustBowlBlues December 29, 2010 at 10:29 pm

A gig at Newsmax with his fellow Iraq-war cheerleading girl friend would be so much better. Someone mention a Pulitzer. I thought I heard back during her imprisonment that she'd won a Pulitzer.

Does this make her the first Pulitzer Prize winner to write for Newsmax? I'm surprised that don't bill her as such on their masthead, or whatever you call the internets thingy.
Is the woman even self-aware enough to realize how ludicrous she looks? Once, she was a stealth stooge for the right. At least Newsmax made an honest woman of her.

Negropolis December 30, 2010 at 1:10 am

My, how the mightly have fallen. Ms. Miller has been banished to the fringe of the realm of Newslandia to peddle news-ish stories in the West Palm Beach, the less Cuban Miami-lite.

Ha Ha!

If our justice system couldn't be legally brought to make her "ride the lightning" then it's only fair that she be brought to "ride the scooter"
