I am now convinced that the assertion (made by me and others) that the New York Times's Miller mess is worse for the paper than the Jayson Blair fiasco is dead-on. After further pondering yesterday's 'explanations' published by the Times--which I dissected below--I've concluded I went too easy on Miller and the Times. Let me note first that as someone who has been reading the Times since the age of 12, I do not root against the newspaper. And I had hoped that executive editor Bill Keller would pull the paper's nuts out of the Miller fire. But the articles published by the Times--a self-serving first-person piece by Miller and a long triple-bylined article on the 'Miller case'--made the deep hole in which the paper finds itself even deeper.

You have to wonder about the top managers of the Times. What were they thinking when they read these articles?
