UPDATE: The author of the original TNR piece, Jeffrey Rosen, has returned to defend the article blame his editor.

Poor Sonia Sotomayor: she hasn’t even been nominated yet and she’s already been smeared six ways from Sunday. Glenn Greenwald, as usual, has the definitive must-read take on all this, particularly with regard to the calculated misuse of anonymity to manufacture a impression that, whether false or true, contains none of the factual content required for proper evaluation in the first place.

TPM and Matt Yglesias (1, 2) have been on this too.
