NICHOLAS FRANKOVICH: An Apology. “I was preachy and rhetorically excessive, and I regret it. The overheated post I wrote has been taken down. Let this apology stand in its stead, both here on the Corner and in the memory of readers who justifiably objected to my high-handedness.” The apology is nice, but next time don’t underbus teenagers just to make clear you’re not one of those icky conservatives. If there’s a justification for ideological media, and there is, it’s that it will undertake to scrutinize the claims of its opponents more closely than the opponents’ colleagues will. If it rushes to join the opponents out of class insecurity, it’s a waste.
