Lelyveld the Deceiver

Joseph Lelyveld, the disgraced and disgraceful former editor of the New York Times, responds to some criticisms which Joe Conason had made of his original review of The Clinton Wars. Leaving aside some of his minor parsing, the real issue is that Lelyveld simply sidesteps Conason's biggest criticism - that Lelyveld and the Times ignored the RTC-Pillsbury report which fully exonerated the Clintons, who had turned over all their financial records, as far back as 1995.
