Drop Your Investigation, or Judy Miller Gets It

The editorial page cowards at the Hack Street Journal offer an empty threat:

The last time the liberal press demanded a media prosecutor, it was to probe the late conservative columnist Robert Novak in pursuit of White House aide Scooter Libby. But the effort soon engulfed a reporter for the New York Times, which had led the posse to hang Novak and his sources. Do our media brethren really want to invite Congress and prosecutors to regulate how journalists gather the news?
That "reporter" for the New York Times is, of course, FOX News/World Nut Daily contributor Judy Fucking-Miller. The late Novak, if I recall correctly, burned his own sources like a pyromanic granted immunity from all arson-related crimes. And the prosecution of I. Scooter Libby had nothing to do with how journalists gather the news, and everything to do with how co-conspirators threaten political opponents through criminal conduct. If Wall Street Journal reporters and their employer haven't violated laws against wiretapping and bribery, and Hell doesn't exist, then they have nothing to fear.
