Doomed By Stupid Arguments

A Teapot Tempest is becoming a full-on “tempest” by the time Jack Shafer weighs in. The now five-day-old grump-fest over Jeffrey Goldberg‘s comments to Harry Jaffe has the Post internal message boards aflame over, as Shafer points out, something Goldberg didn’t even say.

Phil “I Don’t Fly Off The Handle” Bennett wrote on the Post’s internal message board: “The Goldberg comment is appalling, offensive, idiotic. His own search for a diversity-free workplace may have succeeded. That’s not where we live, or want to live, or intend to live. Diversity is a cardinal value of The Post and the communities we cover. Period.”

That would be, mind you, the comment that Goldberg didn’t make. Go Phil.
