Nine senior editors, two executive editors, one legal affairs editor, and one digital media editor resigned from The New Republic today, alongside 13 contributing editors.
The Drudge Report has gone guns-out on The New Republic on how the magazine handled the controversy over a series of articles it ran by the anonymous "Baghdad Diarist."

The docs may or may not be damning evidence. But presuming they're not fakes—and the transcript is incredibly detailed, for certain—here's what they say.
