The New York Times finally published its report on Judith Miller and her grand jury testimony about the CIA leak story. But for many, the Times report–far shorter and less probing than its Jayson Blair reporting some years back– raises more questions than it answers. We’ll talk to Arianna Huffington, editor of the Huffington Post, about Judith Miller.

Also this week: Do sports and radical politics mix? And when they do, does the mainstream press scrub the messy politics out of their reporting on today’s top athletes? We’ll talk about that with Dave Zirin, author of the book What’s My Name Fool: Sports and Resistance in the United States.
