HEY, SALON, GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT: Despite your claim, I never called for Prof. Erik Loomis to be fired. Here’s what I said: “Not a firing offense, but certainly worthy of widespread mockery.” Kind of like Salon’s record for accurate reporting, I guess.

UPDATE: They’ve removed the “ringleader” claim in a stealth correction, with no acknowledgment of the original error. But I suppose that’s the most one can hope for with Salon.
