I’m quoted in today’s New York Times, regarding the Muslim foot baths being installed at the University of Michigan-Dearbornistan, a story I broke on this site back in May. Here’s the NYTimes quote:
On her Web site, Debbie Schlussel, a conservative lawyer and blogger in Southfield, Mich., posted, “Forget about the Constitutionally mandated separation of church and state … at least when it comes to mosque and state.”
Unfortunately, it looks like New York Times “reporter” Tamar Lewin did little reporting, other than getting a couple of quotes pro- and con- the foot baths. She pretty much copied and repeated what was written in the Detroit Newsistan several weeks ago, including using the exact quote from my blog, the exact way the Newsistan identified me, and repeating false “facts” on the foot baths, like how much they really cost. And they claim the New York Times is “the newspaper of record”? More like the lazy, liberal echo chamber.
There’s more to this, and I and fellow blogger, Dearborn Underground (who has been doing excellent work on this and many other issues), are writing a follow-up about the lies that U-M Dearbornistan has been telling and what they’re really doing behind the scenes, none of which Ms. Lewin bothered to look into. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, if you are a Michigan taxpayer–but especially if you are a tuition-paying University of Michigan-Dearbornistan student–please let me know if you are interested in fighting this in the Courts. E-mail me with your name and phone number and permission to forward it on to a third party.
Thanks to Barry Popik for the tip on the NYT piece.
