Correction Of The Day: New Yorker Editor David Remnick Did Not Say The Words "Pimped Out." He Said The Words "Pumped Up."

Just appended to Dave Itzkoff's ArtsBeat blog post, reporting on New Yorker editor David Remnick's new Obama biography, due out in April:

An earlier version of this post misquoted Mr. Remnick on his comparison between the book and a New Yorker article he had previously written. He said the book would not be a “pumped up” version of the article; he did not say that it would not be a “pimped out” version of the article.

This man is unfit to write about that man.
