The Year of Magical Thinking

There is a new layer of nothingness to the Judy Miller story: she didn’t even write her “first-person” account of the experience that appeared in the New York Times last weekend. One of her few remaining friendly colleagues at the paper helped carry the ball on that one, according to the New York Observer‘s story. It is fitting that she picked up her First Amendment award at the “Alladin” in Las Vegas. She’s performed quite a magic trick: getting gobs of attention for a story not written, about a crime not committed, for protecting a source not known or not needing protection, all written up in a “first-person” account by another person.
