Classify Gregg Easterbrook

He's provided a useful taxonomy. Which is he?

Increasingly Easterblogg finds that people and institutions can be divided into three fundamental groupings. They are:

1. Those who deny that they make mistakes.

2. Those who occasionally make mistakes, and admit them.

3. Those who constantly make mistakes.

You know, anyone who works at even the liberal New "andrew sullivan stephen glass ruth shalit michael kelly elizabeth mcCaughey" Republican and dares to criticize the BBC for mistakes which, while real, don't even come close to the regular gross NYT/WAPO/TNR-level errors sure has some nerve...

Particularly when his own book has some wee problems.
