Retraction On Accusations Against John Roberts

The New York Times has printed a retraction saying that Chief Justice designate John Roberts was not the author of an anti-press memo in the Sullivan case during the Reagan Administration.

Accordingly, I withdraw my earlier blog today. I have suspicions of Roberts, and would not support his nomination. But, relying on the earlier NYT report, I was wrong in this instance.

The Tribune Co., by the way, has lost the tax case it inherited from Times-Mirror, and thanks to the dereliction of Thomas Unterman and Mark Willes, has to pay an $850 million tax bill. More about this tomorrow.

Ken--Did you not see the retraction today? It's on page A20. Roberts was not the author of the memorandum.

Ken--Time for your own "search for truth." The New Yokr Times conceded that its report alleging the Roberts criticism was incorrect. Turns out somebody else dood it.
Surely we'll read your own retraction.

Ken, the problem isn't the legal profession. It is lazy and/or corrupt journalists who push their agendas regardless of the facts (see Judy Miller on WMD for example).

Looking forward to reading your retraction of this...and about another 500 things in this blog any day now.
