The writer of the CJR piece on Rathergate has defended his article. I’m sure the original plaintiffs will be issuing their rebuttal soon.

What’s happening is nothing short of incredible. Ten years ago, no one would have even noticed the CJR story, much less rebuked it. In order to do so, they would have written a letter to the editor and prayed that it was picked for publication. That was the old world. Now, everyone’s read it, critiqued it, and the original author has already responded. Wow.
