An Apology to Our Readers

After an investigation, The New Republic has determined that the comments in our Talkback section defending Lee Siegel’s articles and blog under the username “sprezzatura” were produced with Siegel’s participation. We deeply regret misleading our readers. Lee Siegel’s blog will no longer be published by TNR, and he has been suspended from writing for the magazine.

I don’t care if it’s nominally left or right, seeing the mainstream media revealed for the fraudsters and whores they are at heart never ceases to be entertaining.

When attacked, be a man and defend yourself, truth, reason and logic do not depend on numbers.

To paraphrase Prodigy, being outnumbered is not synonymous with being outgunned.
