Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Bret Stephens backs out of bedbug debate.
Karpf, for his part, said that if Stephens had never written the column comparing Karpf to Nazi propaganda ministers, he might have relented. "If he'd just said, `You know I've been teased a lot about this because of that one email that I sent you--I'm willing to talk with you, but I don't want it to be public,' then I probably would have been OK with that," Karpf explained. "But if you're going to go full Godwin against me in the New York Times, I don't think you then get to say, `Oh, by the way, it's all off the record from here on out.' That's just creating a safe space for him so that he could talk about how the Bretbug affair felt for him, but not in a way that anyone would be able to cover. It didn't seem reasonable or appropriate to me."
