About Judith Miller
Judith Miller is an author and a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter formerly with The New York Times.
She is now an adjunct fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor of its magazine, "City Journal." Since 2008, she has been a commentator for Fox News, speaking on terrorism and other national security issues, the Middle East, American foreign policy, and need to strike a delicate balance between protecting both national security and civil liberties in a post-9/11 world.
Prior to leaving The New York Times in November, 2005, she spent 85 days in jail to defend a reporter's right to protect confidential sources. That year she received the Society of Professional Journalists' "First Amendment Award" for her protection of sources. Since leaving jail, she has been advocating the enactment of a Federal shield law to protect the relationship between reporters and their sources and the public's right to know.
She joined the paper's Washington Bureau in 1977, where she covered the securities industry, Congress, politics, and foreign affairs, particularly the Middle East. In 1983, she became the first woman to be named chief of The Times' bureau in Cairo, Egypt, responsible for covering the Arab world. In 1986, she became the Paris correspondent, traveling throughout Europe and North Africa. In 1987 and 1988, she returned to Washington as the Washington Bureau's news editor and deputy bureau chief.
In May, 1989, she became co-coordinator of a newly created unit to enhance the paper's coverage of radio, television, advertising, and publishing. In October, 1990, she was named special correspondent to the Persian Gulf crisis, and after that, The Times' Sunday Magazine's special correspondent.
During the Iraq war, she was the only reporter to be embedded for four months with the 75th Expeditionary Task Force, the multi-service unit whose sensitive mission was to hunt for WMD in Iraq.
Her new book, "The Story, A Reporter's Journey" (Simon &
Schuster 2015), will be available for purchase and signing at the event. Read a synopsis here.
