STUART TAYLOR JR, The Ninth Justice

 

I hear that Keith Olbermann declared on MSNBC Tuesday evening that I am “runner-up” for his “hypocrisy award” and also “a fraud.”

In case anyone takes Olbermann seriously, I identify below the false and misleading assertions of fact that he packed into his 60-second diatribe.

• Olbermann claimed that I characterized Sonia Sotomayor’s 1974 letter to the editor accusing Princeton University of discrimination as a “decisive” reason to oppose her nomination.

False. I wrote nothing close to that, and I do not see Sotomayor’s letter as disqualifying.
