Where Did That Post Go?

I just took down the post showing how David Portnoy was unethically slimed by the New York Times. When I tried to add the link to his video (which I did not feel was necessary to make the point, but several readers asked for it), WordPress went rogue and eliminated the headline, even though it showed on my draft. (The mysterious “draft that doesn’t match what appears when the draft is published” problem is always a nightmare.) I tried everything to fix it—new version, re-editing, copying, going back to the original version. After way too long spent on a minor post, I decided to hell with it. You can check out what I regarded as res ipsa loquitur here, at Instapundit.

A few comments went away with the post; I’m sorry, except for Steve Witherspoon: his comment prompted me to do whatever I did that made WordPress turn on me. I blame him.

    It is Monday and I’ve been told it’s my fault on Monday’s so, I accept the blame. 😉

    Thanks for the link, watching the very slow scrolling video of the discussion between them was annoyingly slow but actually informative beyond the scope of the screen shot. I better understand what happened.

    My opinion, if the New York Times had any wish to interview Portnoy they would have gotten someone local to Portnoy to interview him. They were on a witch hunt and didn’t give a shit what his point of view was.
