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.

Twenty-two-year-old J. R. R. Tolkien began writing “The Story ... Read More

Winslow Homer’s Art, through the Camera Lens

The Bowdoin College Museum of Art's show Winslow Homer and the Camera takes a perceptive, original look at one of America's great art visionaries. It's special for many reasons. It takes a much-considered artist — Homer (1836–1910) is among the gods atop the heap of American artists — and finally makes ... Read More
