The Washington Post's Howard Kurtz reports that disgraced New York Times reporter Judith Miller will be joining Fox News, in an announcement expected to be made today:

Fox News is expected to announce today the hiring of a new contributor, a veteran national security correspondent who has shared a Pulitzer Prize.


Miller will be an on-air analyst and will write for Fox's Web site. "She has a very impressive resume," says Senior Vice President John Moody. "We've all had stories that didn't come out exactly as we had hoped. It's certainly something she's going to be associated with for all time, and there's not much anyone can do about that, but we want to make use of the tremendous expertise she brings on a lot of other issues. . . . She has explained herself and she has nothing to apologize for."

Recently, Miller has written for Reader's Digest and taken a job with the Manhattan Institute, a conservative thinktank.

Update: Politico's Michael Calderone reports that Miller has come out as a supporter of Barack Obama, a move bound to surprise many who found her complicit in the run-up to war as a mouthpiece for the Republican administration:

Now that former New York Times reporter Judy Miller is joining Fox News as an on-air analyst, she's feeling liberated for the first time to share her political opinion.


"I was a Hillary supporter who has gone over to the Obama side," Miller told Politico earlier by phone. "Lots of people think they know what I believe, but don't."


Miller said she has "very firm views on national security" and has been free to write about such matters in recent opinion pieces, but "has always been very personal and private about [her] political views."

Miller also told Politico she was unapologetic for her reporting.

"I think everyone regrets the intelligence was not right, but I did the best that I could," she said.
