VDARE attorney Randy B. Corporon subsequently contacted us asking for an apology for the characterization. The following is our response to him:
After a thorough review, we stand by our reporting, and believe you have no grounds to seek a retraction.
But on the day of this writing, Feb. 12 — the 209th anniversary of the birth of America’s 16th President, Abraham Lincoln — we want to offer your client not what is legally mandated, but what is fair.
And while your analysis and accusations, to use a technical term, are bunk, we believe that you have the right to your boneheaded opinions.
Accordingly, since the reporting you objected to was featured on our website, we will reprint your client’s response unedited on our website, directly below our original reporting.
In addition, we will reprint this letter in our newspaper, thus alerting our print readers that they can see our original reporting as well as your response, unedited here.
