Declan McCullagh "simply made up what I said" - Lessig

Declan McCullagh gets a very strong condemnation today from Lessig.

I just submitted this to GrepLaw:

Lawrence Lessig has a long blog posting "the classic Declan", where he writes about being falsely characterized as favoring "ending anonymity."

"For Declan's statement has no relation to anything the article actually says. Read on if you'd like the proof, but the bottom line yet again: Declan is a brilliant writer, and excellent pundit. But he is more a bomb thrower than a careful reader. His readers should keep this in mind."

It's good that Lessig has the journalistic power to defend himself. I sure wouldn't be able to reach anywhere near a comparable audience (to either of them!) if Declan were to smear me.
