#JOURNALISM: 50 years ago today, The New York Times withdrew its 1920 article “A Severe Strain on Credulity,” which mocked Robert Goddard for believing that a rocket could land on the moon. “The Times is being cute, but there’s no apology to Goddard.”

The NYT was arrogant trash a century ago, and it’s arrogant trash today. The same unaccomplished mockers reveling in their cultural authority all along.
