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.
