TPM Reader TO notes


TPM Reader TO notes an interesting little blip of information from Howie Kurtz’s June 2003 Post article on the Judy Miller controversy.

Miller’s role with MET Alpha [the WMD search team] was controversial within the Defense Department and among some staff members at the Times, where one reporter was assigned to check up on whether other embedded journalists followed similar procedures.

It sounds like he’s saying the Times assigned a reporter to find out just what sort of rules Miller was operating under and whether they were like those enjoyed by other embedded journalists.

Can someone tell me if this strand of the story has been reported out elsewhere?
