Newsweak Apology

I’ve read this “apology” several times now. It continues to strike me as incredibly limp — an awful lot of passing the buck on to sources. It is a reporter’s job to know when sources are credible and when they are not, and that’s doubly true when the sources demand that their names be kept out of stories. Newsweek needs to do way more groveling.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
