The New Yorker Gets Scalia Wrong?

So says former Scalia clerk and Ethics and Public Policy Center president Ed Whelan in National Review.

Certainly, the New Yorker does not get originalism, and looks upon the concept as something that might be espoused by an ogre. After all, if we hadn't abandoned originalism, there would be no civil rights! But, in regard to Scalia's person, the article by writer Margaret Talbot is very fair and sometimes even laudatory. My favorite parts were those chronicling Nino's upbringing and early professional years, as well as his friendship with uber-liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
