Reporter Sits in Jail

Censorship is never over for those who have experienced it. It is a brand on the imagination that affects the individual who has suffered it, forever.
Nadine Gordimer, South African author

Isn’t it ironic or just plain sad that the one person with strong ethics in the Valerie Plame Wilson case sits in jail?

While the sleazy tactics of Karl Rove and the Bush gang are allowed to go unabated and in fact rewarded, Judith Miller sits in jail. This looks more like China’s justice system than a democracy.

What a shame.

There is an article in Editor & Publisher worth reading.

You suggest "ironic" or "sad"... I vote for "travesty."
