Still More on the Wuss

CAMERA's blog, Snapshots, has a good analysis of the Okrent column (made all the more good by a very nice quotation from this here blog).

Snapshots says that Okrent's column "quoted CAMERA's Andrea Levin praising the Times' 'precise language [describing] the perspectives of the parties, the contents of resolutions, the terms of international conventions.'

"Left out of the column, however, was CAMERA's specific criticism of the Times' coverage. CAMERA has expressed concern and disappointment with Mr. Okrent's column and its false symmetry."

This is dirty pool-- what is known as "selective quotation." A big, fat no-no. If I wuz CAMERA I would be royally teed off.

Hurry up, Calame!
