…one wing of the attack on Gingrich will go: he may seem to be an articulate intellectual, but he’s really a stupidhead.
Gingrich is probably best known for serving his wife with divorce papers while she was recovering from cancer surgery, so he could marry his mistress, whom he later divorced to marry a staffer. But he’s also probably the only politician, who when you’re asked “What’s the worst thing he’s done?” has done a lot of things that rival leaving his cancer-stricken wife for his mistress.
Why tell the truth when a lie will do a lot better for your purposes? The correction—which any journalist worth his/her salt ought to know about—can be found here.
And don’t sit on a hot stove till Walsh issues a retraction. Note, also, in the comments section of her article that her readers seem blissfully unaware of her error.
