The Corner

Sam Rosenfeld, For the People

Another Tapped author desperate for news on the Gore-Goldberg front asks :

THE PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW! Why hasn’t a correction been added to this <a href=",1,2268800.column?ctrack=1&cset=true

“>column, as Jonah Goldberg promised?

 Me: The answer is quite simple. The LA Times is going to run a “For The Record” statement on the whole thing. That’s how they wanted to go. I think they wanted it to run today, but there was some last minute back-and-forth with me and the Gore spokesperson. It turns out, by the way, that the statement they gave Greg Sargent is a little different than the one they gave the LA Times (which partly explains the lack of a correction today also). I wish I’d known that  before I did a small piece for the mag on the whole brouhaha. But more about that later. 

Jonah Goldberg — Jonah Goldberg holds the Asness Chair in Applied Liberty at the American Enterprise Institute and is a senior editor of National Review. His new book, The Suicide of The West, is on sale now.

Or rather it is eminently possible to have a discussion about the upsides (“diversity,” talent, ... Read More
