NICHOLAS DE GENOVA UPDATE….Columbia Political Review’s blog, The Filibuster, your source for all things Nicholas “A Million Mogadishus” De Genova, tells us today that De Genova has finally given an interview. The interview is in The Chronicle of Higher Education and the interviewer is obviously pretty skeptical of De Genova’s explanations. The whole thing is worth reading, but for some reason my favorite part is the last question:
Q. I guess my question is, would you have attempted to be clearer?
A. Had I known that there was a devious yellow journalist from a tabloid newspaper among the audience, I certainly would have selected my words somewhat more carefully. But I would not have changed the message. Unfortunately, that message has been largely lost on people who were not at the event.
What a dick.
