If You Control The Past

Gotta change that change that number to 40 now.

The still more serious problem that flows from both of these issues is that pundits who fail in these ways are hardly ever held to account, and thus self-serving, half-baked analyses keep showing up in op-ed pages and on cable news.

This is embarrassing even for James Bennet (editor), who apparently has no shame.
