MICKEY KAUS: “The prestigious Columbia Graduate School of Journalism could use this meandering, weak piece–which fails to deliver the goods in support of whatever its vaguely delineated thesis is–as a case study of an article that desperately needs editing before it’s published. … Oh, wait. The piece was published. By the prestigious Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. ”

That Corey Pein piece isn’t getting much respect: “Pein thus joins Wonkette as the only commentators who, to my knowledge, have tried to argue that the bloggers’ exposure of CBS’s fraudulent documents was unfortunate. If the documents were fakes, their position is simply untenable. Recognizing this, Pein tries half-heartedly to show that the documents might have been genuine after all. But this effort is an utter failure.”
