Chotiner v Williams: the New Yorker comes through again


So I am pleased but not necessarily surprised that the one media outlet that made an effort to seriously and critically examine the claims of Thomas Chatterton Williams is the New Yorker, in this interview Williams did with Isaac Chotiner.

I had already observed Williams' Koch connection. I think we'll be seeing Williams' Quillette byline any day now.

UPDATE: I was wrong about the Quillette byline - instead Williams got a job with the Koch-funded American Enterprise Institute (AEI.)

The Twitterati had some good takes:

I suspect Williams was so bad at answering Chotiner's questions because Williams did the letter on behalf of a right-wing grift.

But the best tweet is the moral of this story.
