A Job Opening For Mapes
by

Judith Miller is gone at the New York Times and Bill Keller clears up his mysterious description of Miller’s “entanglement” with Scooter Libby. Now Miller is freed up to write a book titled, say, Truth and Duty: The Press, The President, and the Privilege of Power (The Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who broke the WMD stories). That’s the title, with a few changes, of Mapes’ book. Mapes says she “broke” the National Guard stories. That’s right: She turns her forgery fiasco into a journalistic coup. It is more accurate to say she was broken by the story. But no matter: unlike the sacked (or, as Keller puts it, “retired”) Miller, Mapes realized that if she ran amok for the right cause the elite media would never pin that label on her.Â
