Fact Checking? None. Zippo. Zilch. Nada.

Power Line responded to the almost outrightly slanderous piece in the Star Tribune by what must have been an intern reporter who basicly wrote off blogs as factually unsubstantiated and blah - blah - blah awful. Galley Slaves thinks it will put the Tribune in a pickle. I hope so.

A blurb:
"...we contacted Eric Ringham, commentary editor of the Star Tribune, and asked whether the newspaper had asked these obvious questions of [the article's author] Ms. Gage. To our amazement, Ringham stated that no one at the newspaper had asked Gage to explain the basis for her claims. In fact, the Star Tribune’s editors did no fact checking whatsoever before they ran Gage’s column accusing us of failing to check facts. None. Zippo. Zilch. Nada."
Check out the whole thing.
