Instapundits Moral Vacuum


Glenn Reynolds – the guy who runs Instapundit, the most popular conservative blog – has responded to your emails demanding he correct the record about Jamie Gorelick’s 1995 memo.

Essentially, Glenn’s position is that he is under no obligation to tell his readers the truth because he didn’t write the post. (It was written by a woman named Ann Althouse, who was filing in for him.)

Glenn also argues that, as it relates to Gorelick, he’s “dropping the ball in the ‘continual smear’ department.”

I guess he has forgotten about the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 posts he’s written attacking Jamie Gorelick.

But, as Glenn notes, all these posts are more than a year old, so they don’t count. Instamorals.
