BRESLIN UPDATE: Back on Wednesday of last week, we had some thoughts on Jimmy Breslin’s alleged faked quotes in his latest essay. It takes him until the last paragraph to say so, but the editor of Newsday writes:
The April 7 Breslin column should have indicated that it was based on a conversation that took place in 1992. And the column did not adhere to Newsday’s standard of publishing only direct quotations that are accurate and precise.
Maureen Dowd could not be reached for comment.
