Still waiting for your verification on that.
As to your latest post, as I posted earlier, I am not trying nor am I interested in trying to convince you skeptics of anything. I bring stuff to this thread that I think a UK FAN might be interested in reading. Seriously, give it a rest with the attempted 'gotcha' stuff, please. I really hope you're capable of discerning the differences between an opinion piece in a blog type setting versus a piece of supposed 'serious journalism.' Maybe not? Seems pretty obvious to me. One is about opinions, the other is supposed to be about FACTS. Of course, facts and quotes seem to be rather malleable when they're in Pete Thamel's hands.
BOTH of Pete Thamel's articles concerning UK have had a source later claim that they were misquoted. Focus on that if you can.
No "gotcha" attempt at all. Just trying to figure out your logic. (Still struggling with that one.
As to your assertion that claims of misquotes are rare, I can assure they're not. That's one reason reporters record almost everything.
Having said that, it seems strange that Thamel hasn't come out with his recording if it's actually a quote about Kanter. In the past, I know of a couple politician that claimed they were misquoted and threatened suit, but were then (the next day, in fact) given copies of their recorded conversations as "proof". (The corresponding story also severely damaged both party's reputations. Perhaps he's not up to date on Wildcat blogs?
