I just saw Kathleen Parker’s post about my New Yorker piece about Roger Stone and Matt Labash’s earlier articles about him in The Weekly Standard. As I read Parker, the gist of the complaint against me is not plagiarism (because there was none), but discourtesy — that is, it would have been appropriate for me to offer a hat-tip or shout-out to Matt’s work. On balance, I think Parker is right; I should have acknowledged Matt’s articles, which I did read and enjoyed a great deal. So let me take this opportunity to apologize to Matt and The Weekly Standard.
