The New Republic Debacle

Here's the best article I've seen to date detailing the debacle unfolding at The New Republic. Franklin Foer continues to dig in deeper, reportedly through the upper mantle, and nearing the earth's core.

The problem for The New Republic is that, after the scandalous fabrications by Stephen Glass, they have no more journalistic integrity than The New York Times. They're in danger of becoming about as believable as The Onion.

Update: He was lying and TNR finally admitted as much.

You forgot about Eve Fairbanks, who was promoted to Editor after getting into the Urban Dictionary. She is still at TNR and the Examiner, making things up just like she did in college.
