Foer: Part of Reason We Found Beauchamp Credible Is Because He's Married To TNR Staffer

Wow, I completely missed this in Kurtz' piece -- and it was right up top.

Does this make the marriage angle relevant? It sure does. What was merely reported by my source "Gracie" yesterday -- that Beauchamp he was chosen primarily because he was married to Elspeth Reeve, and not for his actual experience or reliability -- is confirmed by Foer himself today.

The magazine's editor, Franklin Foer, disclosed in an interview that Beauchamp is married to a New Republic staffer, and that is "part of the reason why we found him to be a credible writer."

Allah has more at the link.

Incidentally, no, I'm not apologizing to Kurtz for claiming he lifted the part about the marriage from this site. That was linked by just about everyone yesterday, and he almost certainly got it from here, either directly or indirectly from antoher site linking me.

Foer "disclosed" this because it had already been disclosed, and Kurtz knows that.

Note to Franklin Foer:

Once again I offer my services as Baghdad Diarist, and, to prove my trustworthiness, not only am I willing to engage in light petting with Michelle Cottle (as promised yesterday), I will sweeten the deal with one (1) hot-oil erotic ass-massage for Jonathan Chait.

I'm your guy, Frank. I am willing to do what who it takes.

Are you mad at me, Frank? Frank, are you mad at me? Why won't you talk to me, Frank?

By the way: As Allah asks-- why is no one in the media reporting on TNR's firing of a whistle-blower? Since Kurtz is lifting from me, he knows about that.

Gracie's reporting is proving 100% true. Beauchamp was hired almost entirely because of his marriage to a staffer. That's accurate -- and relevant to the story.

And yet he was fired.

Is "whistleblower" status only afforded by the MSM to liberals advancing liberal causes?
