    Jailed for contempt of Court (July 7-September 29, 2005)
    She refused to give up her source that outed Valerie Plame as a CIA operative.
    Judge Tatel stated that attorney-client communications with the purpose of committing a crime is not privileged (the same thing is true for reporters).
    She is not protecting a whistle-blower or someone who did the right thing. Instead she is covering for someone who's confidential information was politically motivated.
    She is protecting someone who illegally divulged the name of a CIA operative.
    The Supreme Court refused to hear her plea for protection on the first amendment.
    She promotes fear, writing about germ warfare and weapons of mass destruction.
    A NY Times colleague told New York magazine 'When I see her coming, my instinct is to go the other way' (June 2004).
    She is rude and has been called heartless by colleagues.
    The LA Times said 'She reportedly used the name of a source who had provided information only on condition that her name not appear.'
    She shilled the Bush-Cheney Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction issue.
    Much of her reporting was very selective and single sided only reporting that which showed Iraq as a threat.
    She hid behind confidential sources when giving information on WMD only stating high-level government officials.
    The Houston Chronicle wrote '... reporters such as Miller are the front line in the struggle to maintain a free and independent press.'
    She stood up for her conviction, opting to go to jail rather than give up her source.
    She attended Ohio State and graduated Barnard.
    Her specialty is national security and terrorism.
    She was the first female chief of The Times' bureau in Cairo, Egypt (1983).
    She appeared on 'Sixty Minutes,' 'Oprah Winfrey,' 'Night Line,' 'Today' and 'David Letterman.'
    Even many of those critical of her politics are standing by her.
    She went to jail even though she didn't divulge Valerie Plame as a CIA operative. Yet Robert Novak who did, is free.
