New Yorker's Fact-Checking

New Yorker Editor David Remnick: "Every fact found in my article is checked and confirmed"

Ha'aretz features a lengthy interview with New Yorker Editor David Remnick today, who notes that Israel is a leading interest of his. He also discusses at length the magazine's supposedly strong fact-checking process. Ha'aretz writer Orna Coussin reports:

Remnick says that the trademark attribute of The New Yorker is the insistence on accuracy.

That's funny. In the past, when it has come to Remnick's particular area of interest--Israel--there have been cases in which fact-checking was apparently thrown out the down. See here and here.
