Switched at Birth?

Fishbowl NY spent Sunday watching The New York Times eat its own young and finally realized where we know Judy Miller from. She is actually NY Daily News copy editor and prolific blogger Dawn Eden. Consider the similarities (beyond just the physical):eden2.jpg

&#183 Both are on hiatus (Eden from her blog; Miller from NYT)
&#183 Books on the horizon? Eden sold her book, The Thrill of the Chaste, about not screwing around. Miller’s deal is only rumored, but the book may well be about not getting screwed by your sources. Or not screwing your readers. Or something.
&#183 Both caused a ruckus at their papers Eden left the New York Post after she inserted what some considered to be her pro-life views into a story. Miller wrote stories about WMDs that didn’t exist and later went to jail to protect something, even if no one’s sure exactly what.

Can’t fool us, Judy/Dawn.
