    He has now deleted the vast majority of the comments including his own. Although he does not have to be a doormat, it would have been fairer and more respectable if he had addressed what he had agreed and disagreed with the criticism. You can't learn anything from escaping and silencing voices.
    Hope Jenny would not let herself bothered by this incident too much.

    Thank God we still have Jennifer Kirk to write about the real competitors, not just in ladies, but in all disciplines:

    Yeah, I loved this most recent entry from her I hope to see newfound consistency from Caro, indeed

    Totally agree. She is obviously not a journalist (yet) but can certainly be considered a columnist. Columnists are employed and paid to express their opinion and point of view. That said, standards of decency should be applied to all, especially Hersh, as their columns reflect on the papers that employ them.
