WSJ Reporter (Former J-Schooler) Gets in Hot Water for Email from Iraq...or does she?

So for those of you who haven't seen it, there is a now-famous email, written by former Columbia student, and current WSJ reporter, Farnaz Fassihi.

You can read it here or here. Prof. Gissler (her former RW1 prof, I think) sent it around to our RW1 class on Sept. 25.

And then it comes out she's "taking a vacation", and there is an online campaign to speak out against this.

And then on Tuesday, E&P reports that her vacation had been planned anyway.

Interesting...

Yeah, I'm not sure that calling Paul Steiger a fascist is going to help her case.
