Well-Known A**holes Judith Miller And James O’Keefe Discuss Why They Are The Worst

I am the worst.
Judith Miller is a failed reporter who wrote fake stories about fake WMDs in Iraq that helped get the nation boned up and ready for WAR WAR WAR! James O’Keefe is a prissy little piece of garbage who lures CNN reporters onto dildo lube boats, dresses up as Osama bin Laden and wades across the Rio Grande to prove absolutely nothing, tries to dupe people into committing voter fraud, to prove that voter fraud IS TOO a thing, and then cries like a little bitch about how everybody’s going to murder him, just for journalisming so good.

Judith Miller Knows Who To Blame For Her Crap Iraq War Reporting (Hint: Not Judith Miller)

Pure gender-neutral evil
Judith Miller, disgraced former propagandist for the Bush administration (and also former reporter for the New York Times) — now a Fox News contributor, OF COURSE — is still defending herself and the blood on her hands, with a new book, GRRRR. As if it weren’t bad enough that she spent a good part of last year defending poor Dick Cheney from the mean liberal media who can’t just get over that whole “they lied us into war” thing already, she also wants the world to know whose fault it was that she was in on the con job: Read more on Judith Miller Knows Who To Blame For Her Crap Iraq War Reporting (Hint: Not Judith Miller)…

Judith Miller Simply Will Not Have You Second-Guessing The Heroes Who Started The Iraq War

Since they’re getting the old Iraq War band together for a Greatest Misses tour, it only stands to reason that we’d hear from the group’s publicist, Judith Miller. On Fox News Friday, Miller said that it is just SO UNFAIR for anyone to doubt the counsel of the people who were so spectacularly wrong on Iraq the first time around. After all, they probably have a lot that they can contribute, considering their expertise in being dead wrong. Maybe they’ll be right this time. It could happen!

Dubya’s Rottenest Torture Turd John Yoo Has Important Thoughts On NSA Leaks And The Rule Of Law

Remember all the fun we had debating whether torture was torture? Well, the good times don’t have to end, because everyone’s favorite unindicted war criminal John Yoo is back at National Review Online’s Treasury of Travesties “The Corner” to remind us all that John Yoo is a fucking disgrace. In this installment of “John Yoo’s John Yoo Is A Fucking Disgrace Internet Column,” John Yoo informs us that we must “Prosecute Snowden.” A fascinating thesis that is arguably true! But will John Yoo make our heads explode by padding out his column with infuriating conflations and First Amendment hypocrisy? Ha, does the Pope wash lady feet?

Romney Advisor Guy Slamming Obama For ‘Leaks’ Was Same Dude Who Leaked On Valerie Plame

Mitt Romney really wants to be seen as a credible candidate on foreign policy, but finds himself in sort of the same bind that Barack Obama did in 2008: He hasn’t actually done much in terms of foreign policy, so he’s hired a bunch of people to help advise him. How about some ambassadors? Ambassadors are probably good, we think, although we haven’t read that much Henry James. So of course it makes sense that, to support his tough-guy speech on the eve of his whirlwind visit to his money in overseas accounts, Mittens would release a ponderous statement of support from one of his ambassadors on retainer. The advisor, former Ambassador to Turkey Eric Edelman, penned a nice boilerplate paragraph about how Romney’s Reno speech was all “Reaganesque” and stuff, blah blah no apologies for America and so on, and then the thing closes by echoing Romney’s VERY SERIOUS concerns that the Obama administration may have leaked information about the Bin Laden raid and drone attacks, back when everybody on the Right was whining and moaning that Obama wouldn’t release any intel about the Bin Laden raid and drone attacks: Read more on Romney Advisor Guy Slamming Obama For ‘Leaks’ Was Same Dude Who Leaked On Valerie Plame…

Lying Warmonger Judith Miller Blasts Assange For Not Verifying Info

Disgraced Newsmax “reporter” (government neo-con lie re-spewer) Judith Miller is also on Fox News, it turns out, because they hire commentators based on how many war crimes they’re responsible for. (Even though nobody on Fox & Friends can understand what Genghis Khan is saying.) According to Miller, who yes, blindly spread the lies given her by warmongers in the government in order to explode the Middle East, Julian Assange is a bad journalist “because he didn’t care at all about attempting to verify the information that he was putting out or determine whether or not it would hurt anyone.” Thank God we have this paragon of journalistic ethics to help us judge Julian Assange.

Disgraced Iraq-Enabling Reporter Judith Miller Winds Up At Newsmax

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. Read more on Disgraced Iraq-Enabling Reporter Judith Miller Winds Up At Newsmax…

Washington’s Most Listed Journalists

The Washingtonian has just hit the stands with a list of the city’s “50 Best and Most Influential Journalists.” That’s right: best and most influential, though recent events seem to suggest it’s really an either/or proposition. How else can they justify putting Judy Miller on the list? Face it: the “best” is wishful thinking. Also, it sounded classier than the Washingtonian editor’s original roster, “50 People We Would Like to Owe Us a Favor.” Read more on Washington’s Most Listed Journalists…
