New Yorker Reporter Admits to Fabricating Quotes


The New York Times reports that Jonah Lehrer, a staff writer for The New Yorker, resigned from the magazine after fabricating quotations attributed to Bob Dylan.

Meanwhile, Rashid Khalidi and Ilan Pappe, both of whom are guilty of the same serious transgression, have not resigned from their university positions, nor even publicly addressed their fabrications. (See details here and here.)
