    Wow. Rebecca Solnit certainly was angry about Dan Baum’s review – or at least that one small portion of it. On reading her rebuttal, her passion to defend her journalistic diligence makes sense, but hardly blows Mr. Baum out of the water.

    Her barely veiled accusation of his bigotry and the overall snide tone likely did her reputation more harm than good.
