Jonathon Schwarz, Honest Man

Hey, Diogenes. I’ve got someone for you: Jonathon Schwarz of A Tiny Revolution: I am so God damn honest.

Specifically, Schwarz is honest about how a particular claim about how Bob Woodward was right and the Pentagon was wrong about something that Woodward said Don Rumsfeld did, and the Pentagon said Rumsfeld didn’t, say to Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia during the run-up to the Iraq war, is in fact inaccurate. That is, Woodward (and the NYT) was wrong, and the Pentagon (at least in this particular case) was right. And Schwarz takes pains to point out how the conventional wisdom on this is thoroughly wrong, and easily disproven by consulting the actual facts.

That’s why Schwarz deserves a proud place in the blogroll: He’s honest even when it hurts.
