Scooping other media with an exclusive story, Dylan Byers of Politico today reported he had obtained a copy of a letter dated yesterday from Robert N. Driscoll, the attorney for ATF whistleblower John Dodson, written to Fortune managing editor Andrew Serwer, that demanded retraction of a report by Katherine Eban the letter calls “demonstrably false in many respects.”
Even if the letter is withdrawn, Eban identifies sources whose slander is used to libel Dodson. Fortune can save itself a lawsuit if it acts quickly (still on there today) to remove the article from view, but its mea culpa response to the IG report would indicate it stands by its libel. http://features.blogs.fortune.cnn.com/2012/09/20/the-fast-and-furious-gun-walking-scandal/
Would be nice if some day we would get the real goal of fast and furious instead of the "go after cartel leadership" that were words with no action. Maybe Eban knows.
