Somebody seriously needs to lock up all the shovels, because Robin Pogrebin can’t keep her hands off of them:
"The broad outlines of the story are so familiar as to be almost archetypal, and for that reason it has the same power that fables do." @qjurecic on Kavanaugh and our book @katekelly @TheAtlantic @TheAtlIdeas https://t.co/LkKawWPqyh

Wow. That’s quite the plug, Robin!
I don't think the lesson here is the one you think it is.

This is really not going to be a good day for you.

Poor Robin doesn’t seem to realize what she’s just said.
“the same power that fables do”
LMAO she actually willingly chose to use ***this*** quote to promote this article about her book. https://t.co/IY8TtXrfgC

The fable comparison is very apt.

So your story is a fable. Got it.

So it’s straight up fiction.

At least she’s admitting it now.
Talk about doubling down

OMG, just give it up @rpogrebin. Each tweet just makes it worse.

You are like a twitter masochist.

When you find yourself in a hole, the first thing you do is stop digging. You should probably drop the shovel.
— K. Locke (@Kml6490) September 18, 2019
Why drop it? She’ll just pick it up again.
You can write fables based on what feels true or you can be a journalist and focus on facts, evidence, and corroboration. You're trying to live down the middle here by picking and choosing the facts and look at the firestorm it's caused.

You have no shame, no conscience and no dignity. It's actually quite amusing to watch. Any vestiges of respect the @nytimes had is being erased by you and I'm rather enjoying it.

How low can Robin Pogrebin and the New York Times go? Stay tuned, because we’re pretty sure they haven’t reached rock-bottom quite yet.
