Default Re: The Week in Blog: I Have a Shoe (Bill Scher & Matt Lewis)

Scher: the reason the NYT didn't have to "answer" for the Freakonomics blog is because there was no sin to answer for. I guess you didn't hear the end of the story, but the enviromental scientists (when shown the actual passages of the book) stood by their original remarks. The problem was a dishonest blogger lied to them about the context to get outraged quotations.

Thanks Matt. Though you've quoted him in almost every Week in Blog so far, I hope you'll now use a more credible source for your references.

I know it's tempting to quote only the most rabid and irrational players in New Media........but PLEASE.....give us more Conor Friedersdorf .....and much less Mark Levin and Liar Liarsson.
