Re: He’s Talking About Me
I was glad Geoffrey Nunberg said, in the New York Times, that he was referring to something a columnist for National Review had written, rather than simply saying that “National Review wrote” something. I’m always annoyed when statements that a contributor to the magazine or the site has made are attributed to NR. The magazine does speak in its own name in its editorials. It’s certainly reasonable for people to criticize NR for running a particular article, but it would be nice if people could mark the distinction between publishing an article and endorsing every detail of it.
