Journalists Won't Give Conscience Award to Judith Miller

The fourth estate has second thoughts on proclaiming Judith Miller a hero, reports Editor & Publisher:

NEW YORK The board of The American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) has voted unanimously to reverse an earlier decision to give its annual Conscience in Media award to jailed New York Times reporter Judith Miller, E&P has learned.
The group's First Amendment committee had narrowly voted to give Miller the prize for her dedication to protecting sources, but the full board has now voted to overturn that decision, based on its opinion that her entire career, and even her current actions in the Plame/CIA leak case, cast doubt on her credentials for this award.

It is said that she is behind much of the rumormongering and she is hiding herself as the source...not much honor among creeps.
