CJR owes Sy Hersh a big apology:
Not So Fast, CJR : [O]ver the next decade, many, many people will be kissing Seymour Hersh's ring and pleading forgiveness.
A reread of a Columbia Journalism Review piece on Mr. Hersh yielded this passage -- a perfect example of the man's skepticism proving prescient:
On April 7, for example, when the U.S. military was temporarily bogged down in southern Iraq, Hersh rushed into print with an article that accused Donald Rumsfeld of micro-managing (and mismanaging) the war plan. When Iraqi resistance crumbled, Hersh's article was obsolete.
This is from the July/August 2003 issue. Kiss it, CJR!
