Since Michelle Boorstein is the religion correspondent for the Washington Post, and doesn’t usually cover the book beat, it’s understandable that today’s recap of the Jewel of Medina controversy doesn’t reference any of GalleyCat‘s extensive commentary from the last two weeks on Random House‘s decision to not publish the novel Sherry Jones wrote because they didn’t want to risk the possibility of terrorist reprisals, even when it attempts to describe the sentiments of “publishing insiders” by only quoting one person who doesn’t work for Random: Sara Nelson.
But identifying Nelson as “a blogger for Publishers Weekly“? That’s not good. So not good.
