Default Re: Science Saturday: Mistakes Were Made (Robert Wright & George Johnson)

I'm certainly in favor of Bob consistently implementing any editorial policy he chooses. However, I doubt any sin committed in a past life justifies accepting this kind of abuse from mainstream reporters not wanting to "associate" themselves with his "publication." The NYT's science section is very well written, but the treatment elsewhere in the paper of hot topics like global warming and string theory can be very sloppy. And if they want to be fussy about softball fluff across the NYT, they should consider articles on Bernadine Dohrn's cookie recipes and the like. Of course, they're entitled to publish/appear where they like, but they shouldn't fool themselves: the editorial quality of old and new media are converging, and it's not just because new is getting better. Gambatte, Bob!
