Why Oh Why Can't We Have a Better Press Corps? (Serious Godwin's Law Violation at the New Republic Edition)
Matthew Yglesias says: "It's good to own the magazine":
Matthew Yglesias / proudly eponymous since 2002: It's Good to Own the Magazine: This is pretty sweet. As you may recall, New Republic editor in chief Martin Peretz recently took to the pages of his magazine to accuse George Soros of being a "young cog in the Hitlerite wheel." As Soros points out (follow the link) this charge is false. Peretz, in his response to Soros' response, won't even admit what he accused Soros of doing much less concede that the allegation was false!
It seems to me that when a magazine falsely accuses someone of being a Nazi collaborator that a correction would be warranted.
Is this really true? Could TNR seriously be planning not to run a correction?
