This weekend, The New York Times Op-Ed page published contributions from Tony Judt and his fifteen-year-old son Daniel. On no apparent factual basis, Michael Wolff announced that Judt had fabricated his son’s writing.
Today the younger Judt takes to the internet to respond. In a piece for the Daily Beast, he writes:
Mr. Wolff, I can’t get around one blockade that will prevent me from proving that I wrote my half of the article: your habit of parading your own opinions as fact, caused by your willingness to make up anything in order to get a few reads, comments, and tweets.
The article is entitled “Michael Wolff is the Child.” Which seems sort of fair!
Still, NB: contributor bio:
Daniel Judt was born in September, 1994, and is in the ninth grade at the Dalton School.
