There’s nothing quite like Jon Stewart taking a hypocritical media figure down a couple of notches, and that’s just what he did with Fox News’ Judith Miller on Monday night’s “Daily Show.”
Miller is convinced that discussing the Obama administration’s international successes (Gaddafi, bin Laden) in too great of detail will be “truly injurious to the national security.” It’s a conversation that’s been going on since GOP candidate Mitt Romney accused the president of leaking classified material to bolster his campaign, and who better than Miller to comment.
See, back in 2002 when she worked for The New York Times, she was involved in a Bush administration leak of intelligence information that ultimately resulted in her losing her job. So Jon Stewart couldn’t help but wonder why leaks were okay for her to use back then, but dangerous in the hands of others:
“Now to bring the whole thing full circle, she’s on f*cking television as the expert on why other people doing it is not good. When in reality, the move she is describing should be called ‘pulling a Miller.’”
