"They knew his work was crap more than 6 weeks ago" II

Mitchell Prothero, a Beirut photo-journalist, says here that Kathryn-Jean Lopez was informed of the inaccuracies in W. Thomas Smith Jr's "reporting" from Lebanon more than six weeks ago and did nothing about it. Greenwald now has the same account from Prothero and Chris Allbritton. The late-Friday Lopez and Smith posts therefore occurred

only once a reporter began calling around to ask about the brewing scandal. Such foot-dragging behavior in the face of outright fabrications published by their magazine is the opposite of a forthright and honest retraction.

Indeed, as someone might say. Unlike Beauchamp, who was never employed paid as a blogger by TNR, W. Thomas Smith Jr still writes a blog for NRO.
