New York Times’ Virginia Heffernan Retracts Ron Paul Smear

by | Dec 26, 2007 | Stress Blog | 5 comments

…A half-assed retraction and a few and a half days too late if you ask me.

I wonder if the 250+ comments ridiculing Virginia and her editors for their repeated failures had anything to do with it.

If anyone actually wants to debate Ron Paul’s principles and political positions, we Paulians are eagerly awaiting your challenge.

It must really be tough to be opposed to someone who’s right about 95% of what he says and who has such a decent personal character. What will you come up with next?

Update: Lew Rockwell writes:

“As I said sometime ago, those who smear Ron Paul will live to regret it, as their own readers and advertisers shun them. MSM, here are the new rules: no lying, no ridiculing, no suppressing. Remember ‘journalistic ethics’? You really have no choice. The Internet rules. ‘You’d better start swimmin’, or you’ll sink like a stone, ’cause the times they are a-changin’.'”
