Digging His Way Out of a Hole
Follow this link (hat tip Tim Blair) to read how Robert Fisk digs a deeper and deeper hole for himself over whether or not Zarquawi exists, is a threat, should be covered by the media, and much else. A polite interviewer, asking straightforward (though increasingly astonished) questions, reveals Fisk to be a curious combination of poseur and fanatic. I would guess this would finish him except that nothing ever does. He is kept afloat by the self-deception of his readership.
