The Eyeopener Report | Blackout: The Media and the Nuclear Spying Cover-up, October 15, 2013


In June 2003, then-New York Times reporter Judith Miller learnt Valerie Plame's name along with journalists like Robert Novak and Bob Woodward. From July 2005 to October 2005, Miller spent 85 days in jail for not revealing her sources on Plame to Patrick Fitzgerald's grand jury investigation into the Plame affair.

Although every aspect of Miller's imprisonment is strange, by far the strangest is Miller's continuing refusal to speak out about the real Plame scandal, and that the entire Fitzgerald investigation, including her time in jail, was based on a complete sham. Find out more about the strange media silence on the real Plamegate scandal in this week's Eyeopener report.
