We try harder

The New York Times has collected posts by bloggers that discuss Judith Miller and the New York Times: “Bloggers discuss the Miller case.” The Times lists the posts in order of popularity. The good news, as far as I can tell from a quick look, is that John’s post “Judy Miller speaks” has come in second to Jay Rosen’s Pressthink post here.

JOHN adds: I think my advice to Ms. Miers was better than Scott Ott’s:

Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers, making the rounds among influential Senators yesterday, refused to answer questions about her views on the landmark abortion case, Roe v. Wade (1973), citing her right to privacy as found in the 1965 Griswold v. Connecticut Supreme Court ruling that served as the key precedent for the Roe decision.

“If under Griswold, people have a right to privacy in the purchase contraceptives,” Miss Miers said, “I certainly have a right to protect myself from unwanted questions.”
