James O’Keefe and Judith Miller Talk Press Freedom

Mention either James O'Keefe's or Judith Miller's name and you are likely to cause a stir.

Besides being two major figures in the world of journalism over the last decade, both have rarely shied away from stirring up controversy, whether with guerrilla stories that catch leftist organizations at their work (often unsavory), or with controversial missives from the Iraq War.

While both may draw up strong feelings in both supporters and detractors alike, neither can be said to have made no impact on the world of media — especially when you consider what both James and Judith have been through in the course of their work. Both have confronted their own media community, both have come under fire from their colleagues, and both have faced criminal penalties (Judith served 85 days in jail for refusing to give up her sources in the infamous Valerie Plame affair, James was arrested for criminal conspiracy, among other incidents).

The two sat down together a few weeks ago to discuss what it's like being ousted from the media's inner circle.

Quin, I have to agree with you that this was an amazing example of about as bad a judgment as someone can have. And this looks downright mean. I like what my former John Locke Foundation boss John Hood, whom you linked, said at The Corner:

This CNN episode ought to convince all conservatives that not only should O’Keefe’s behavior be condemned, but conservative leaders and organizations need to do a better job of assessing the maturity level and character of the people they hire, support, or praise. Building an alternative media network of conservative and libertarian periodicals, news portals, broadcasters, blogs, and video sites is a great idea.

The double standard is pie-throwingly ridiculous.
