New Yorker messes up Jeffrey Toobin correction
New Yorker first radically misrepresents the issue at stake in the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby case. When publicly corrected, they make a correction, and then misspells and mis-names the Solicitor General of the U.S. And they quoted Toobin's mischaracterization of what the religious freedom law was.
Althouse / March 29, 2014... Jeffrey Toobin, the legal correspondent, radically misrepresents the issue at stake in the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby case. Ann Althouse (commentator, lawyer), takes apart his mistake here.
Then, when issuing a correction in response to Althouse, the New Yorker misspells and mis-names the Solicitor General of the U.S. It was all on transcript. A fact checker consulting the transcript would easily have revealed the error.
The more egregious one was the way in which Toobin mischaracterized what the religious freedom law was all about; its not in dispute; Toobin just got it wrong.
