Over at Wonk Room, Brad Johnson is trying to get responses from the Post about why George Will is allowed to ignore fact and reality, and why the Post won’t run a correction of his errors. It’s pretty pathetic. The great conservative “intellectual”–Will–is apparently unaccountable.
And you wonder why newspapers are failing today.
I think we need them desperately–see this Paul Starr cover story of the latest New Republic–but when the Washington Post acts in such a boneheaded manner in defending one of its columnists’ egregious errors, it’s hard to feel too bad for them.
