Judith Miller (born January 2, 1948) is an American journalist and commentator. She worked in The New York Times′ Washington bureau before joining Fox News. Long criticised for the strong anti-Islamic bias in her writing, Miller became embroiled in controversy after her coverage of Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) program both before and after the 2003 invasion was discovered to have been based on the inaccurate information in the intelligence investigations, particularly those stories that were based on sourcing from the now-disgraced Ahmed Chalabi (wikipedia)
