Add another item to the list of former New York Times reporter Judy Miller's dubious accomplishments: redefining the word "irony."

Courtesy of Atrios, quote of the day comes via this article on Miller today; she told an audience at Kansas State University that she's "worried about bloggers" because "[a post] starts as a rumor and within 24 hours it's repeated as fact."

Gosh, unsubstantiated rumors repeated as fact? Well, we guess Miller would know something about that, having given us stories like "U.S. Says Hussein Intensifies Quest for A-Bomb Parts," "U.S. Analysts Link Iraq Labs to Germ Arms," "U.S-Led Forces Occupy Baghdad Complex Filled With Chemical Agents" and "Aftereffects: Prohibited Weapons; Illicit Arms Kept Till Eve of War, An Iraqi Scientist Is Said to Assert."
