Last week, The New Yorker ran corrections on some of science writer Jonah Lehrer’s blog posts when it was discovered that he repurposed material from his previous writing. I’m a fan of Lehrer’s work– I’ve read and enjoyed all three of his books. Wrote a very silly piece building off of The New Yorker’s disclaimer, which is up at The Barnes & Noble Review today. Here’s an excerpt:
Editors’ Note: Portions of this post appeared in similar form in an April, 2011, post…. We regret the duplication of material. — The New Yorker
Editors’ Note: Portions of our intern will no longer be appearing in our office. We regret that you will now have to duplicate your own material.
There’s a bunch of stuff in between that makes that excerpt make sense. I’m finding that this is a hard piece to excerpt.
