LAW: Apology Accepted

You know, lawyers get a bad reputation for a lot of reasons, and unlike a lot of people in the legal profession, I tend to agree with a lot of the criticisms. But I have to say: I feel a real surge of professional pride when I see the Powerline guys take on journalists. Experienced litigators just have a much more precise view of what constitutes evidence and how you go about proving and verifying things than a lot of journalists do, and when those guys get into a fight with a journalist, the journalist almost always winds up looking like he brought a knife to a gunfight.

In that vein, it's encouraging to see a complete apology from Bill Moyers as a result of John Hinderaker's latest efforts. Hinderaker completely exposed Moyers' reliance on third-hand hearsay, and he had Moyers dead to rights.
