Shades of Stephen Glass?

Eve Fairbanks, a young writer at the New Republic, wrote this article about Republican dating sites. In it, she recounts three dates she had with men through ConservativeMatch.com.

Now, however, this gentleman claims to be one of the men she went on a "date" with -- and he questions some small, factual details about her story.

The man here seems clearly peeved (understandably) to have been treated like a bear at a zoo. And the facts in dispute are quite minor.

But the New Republic certainly seems to get in a lot of trouble when it does sneering color stories about conservatives.

UPDATE: Our friend above is not the only interview subject to have had a negative experience with Ms. Fairbanks.
