    I'm glad people are waking up to the realization that Miller is a clown and has been for several years.

    Miller insisting he’s never spoke to Adnan Virk was not something I’m buying.

    Does he do birthday parties?

    “He’s got four kids!”

    How many times did Miller say that?!?

    Pure speculation but I wonder if Virk called into the office and he thought it was for something entirely different. Not for leaking to AA. Something else that he thought would wreck his career.

    Something that, if he carried two phones on him, would “be a problem” at home.

    His podcasts -- history of ESPN, Curb Your Enthusiasm, even the Sex in the City one -- are very good

    That's incredibly ignorant for someone in the media business who surely knows many, many people who lost jobs through no fault of their own, at a small fraction of Virk's salary or less and had kids. Maybe even four kids.

    Can you imagine how the “please don’t lay me off I have four kids” convo would go at Gannett?

    I think that Miller has an anti-establishment streak. In a way, his Origins podcast is a lot of people defying the suits to succeed.

    The move of someone in the midst of a major PR campaign. Or someone doing caught something wrong.

    If only he had that photo to look at before he put it all in jeopardy by leaking information to Awful Fucking Announcing.
