Even the liberal New Republic:

Heard on the Charlie Rose show of 8 April 2003:
David Brooks: If you go to The New Republic website, you read this fantastic diary the Iraqi intellectual Makiya is writing. One of the things he talks about are the wounds that psychologically these people have suffered. They've suffered incredible deprivation ...

Tony Judt: I hate to agree with you David. This is going to undermine your reputation at the Weekly Standard and elsewhere. But I do agree. However ...

Charlie Rose: He's already done that by quoting The New Republic.

Tony Judt: That's true.   [pause]   Well, not so much these days.
