The silence is deafening from Big Sky Country

Jonathan Miller's been caught with his pants down, while his close female associate's hand has been in the cookie jar, and not a word from Montana's ... err, we mean Kentucky's preeminent left-wing blog.

Wonder why? Couldn't be because Miller encouraged Mark Nickolas to start the biggest slander site in cyberspace, could it? Couldn't be because Nickolas and Miller are close, could it?

While we're on the subject, we gotta hand it to Ryan Alessi. We frequently accuse him of being wet between the ears and not having a full understanding of Kentucky politics, but the way he framed this story is nothing short of brilliant. He protected himself and the Lexington Herald-Leader from legal liability while making the point perfectly clear.

On the other hand, what in the world was Page One Kentucky thinking by coming right out and calling Miller an adulterer? Talk about your libel suit, ripe for picking off the litigation tree.

Drawing your own conclusions is one thing. Putting them on paper, or on the Internet, is another thing entirely.

In the case of Page One, truth is the ultimate defense against libel.

David, yes we know this, but so far there's no proof.

So far.

There's very strong evidence, but as yet no proof.

That's the type of thing that newspapers don't go to print with until they have proof, or at least one person on record as saying so and at least one attempt on record to get a comment from the other party.

We'd love to hear a comment from Ms. Parker, but she has lawyered up.

What I'm suggesting is that Page One has the proof.

Every day that passes with no lawsuit seems to back that up, doesn't it?

If Page One has the proof, we'd love to see it.

C'mon Jacob, if you're reading, show your hand. You can become the Matt Drudge of Kentucky, or the Mark Hebert of the blogosphere.
