...The One-Minute Pundit

And sure enough, Jeffrey Goldberg pops up on TheAtlantic.com to issue what amounts to an institutional mea culpa:
The question arises, then, why did Jennifer Rubin make this outrageous assertion about jihadism and Norway?
Well, perhaps it was because she was reading the Atlantic.
P. S. After Fort Hood I posited a screwloose ultra-right-winger. It's impossible not to use snap judgment when extremists of all hues share the same m. o. I know one thing: on 9/11 I knew who it was. Sometimes snap judgment is right.
P. P. S. at 10:03 p. m. I'm retracting a good chunk of this because I didn't know what the hell I was talking about. Jennifer made a snap judgment, and "Murrow" Fallow screamed. This is not quite two total idiots, although Murrow is progressing to that stage very nicely and Jennifer has the stuff to make it there too if she's not careful. The next time I write about something I really should get the facts first.
