On Sunday, the New York Times’ Bill Kristol devoted an entire column to proclaim his prediction that conservative strategist Mike Murphy would be joining the McCain campaign. “I expect that in the next couple of weeks we’ll learn that Murphy is coming on board as chief strategist,” he said. Today, Murphy announced he would not be joining the campaign:
“I do not expect to join the campaign,” Murphy said. “They’re my friends, and I wish them well.”
The New York Times has been forced to clean up Kristol’s factual errors three times in just six months.
