An interesting editorial in the NYT.
I think on some level the more this poor woman tries to defend herself from detractors, the worse it’s getting. She’s obviously a highly intelligent woman, and she references comments made to her while trying to counter them, and there are a whole lot of words coming from her mouth.
Unfortunately, I think some readers (and I’ve done it) kind of skim what she says and somehow it’s becoming twisted–what she’s saying and what she’s responding to. By the time they read the article, they’ve heard negative things about it and then read their own interpretations into it.
And considering how badly she got screwed with the last interview, I’m surprised she can bring herself to talk to/with the media again.
This one, I think, should be read carefully.
