Garry Trudeau: Even Though The Claims Made In My Cartoon Are Plainly False, That Doesn't Detract From the Power of My Point, Whatever That Might Turn Out to Be

Progs are chiming in in the comments, echoing the Fake But Accurate sentiment.

"We'd hoped it would be obvious that the strip was written before Rolling Stone admitted problems in its reporting," he emailed. "It's not the first time I've been overtaken by events, and it wont be the last--the occupational hazard of a long lead time."


...

Trudeau still defends the strip's value.

"Jackie's story was not the focus, only the setup for commentary on institutional conflict of interest in adjudicating sexual assault, an issue that did not disappear with the credibility of the article," he emailed. "Not even UVA has claimed otherwise."

What? If the rape was fabricated, the issue of UVa's "conflict of interest" in adjudicating this non-existent sexual assault most emphatically did disappear.

Fake but accurate, fake but accurate.

Check out the "Top Comment." But you should expect this -- this is the amateur progressive-porn webzine Slate.

I'm not even a Trudeau fan, but I don't see what all the fuss is about. The idea behind the strip still holds up even if the UVA story was all BS.

You are a fan of The Narrative, though, aincha?
