Jonah: Agree with you that Mumia’s murder is worse than Glass’s lies. Who could disagree, really? (And as much as I believe Mumia is a murderer, we should probably allow that most of his supporters, including those who would celebrate a Mumia memoir, think he’s innocent.) Glass has gotten attention from conservatives because he was one of us. He may have worked at The New Republic, but his earlier job was at the Heritage Foundation. He first gained attention at the University of Pennsylvania for his anti-PC journalism. Many of us on the Right knew him. I wouldn’t have labelled him a friend, but definitely an acquaintance. So the betrayal, at some level, is personal. Also, having once worked at The New Republic, I resent what he did to an important magazine that didn’t deserve his deceit.
