All Hail Judy

While I certainly disagree with most (though not all) of the arguments for why Judith Miller should not have to testify, there is a missing piece of this discussion.

If Miller is a hero for going to jail, what does that make the reporters (cough Tim cough) who didn't?

This isn't my standard; I think testifying here was the right thing to do. But, we seeem to be in this bizarro world in which one reporter is praised while others are not condemned. If Miller did the right thing, presumably Russert did the wrong thing. No?
