In my in-box Thursday was my regular promotional TNR newsletter, at the top of which was listed the much-discussed lame defense of their publishing Scott Beauchamp's fictional pieces (which they continue to call "essasy" with "anecdotes"). Much better analysts than I have already pretty well Fisked them, so I just thought I'd point out one other thing:
The article linked directly beneath that, in the newsletter, is Buyer's Remorse: John McCain Learns You Can't Un-Sell Out.
It's a pity TNR's editors can't "un-sell out" their scruples, their professionalism and their country, over the Beauchamp mess.
McCain stands a better chance of recovery this year.
