you're gonna get shot, shot by me:
Publishing something that somebody vents to you and then immediately says is off the record when there is no broader significance to his/her comments makes you a fucking douchebag. It makes you the reason people justifiably hate the media. It makes me want to lodge a screwdriver in your achilles tendon, because you just abused a responsibility I take very seriously. It makes sources reluctant to talk to real reporters on the record.
Michael Calderone has the Scotsman's defense of ratfucking Samantha Power:
Sometimes, public figures say something and then attempt to retract it by insisting it was "off the record" after the event. But by then it is too late, particularly if it is in the public interest that the story be published.I dare you to come up with an explanation of how the "public interest" was served by publishing her comments.
For real? Powers made an amateur mistake, plain and simple. I guarantee that any paper in any part of the world with that sort of comment about any candidate would have run it -- especially if the "off the record" plea is made after the fact.
