The Globe yesterday apologized for the gaffe, which involved a freelancer named Michael Corcoran, who has been writing pro-Palestine posts on his blog for about three years now:

Globe editors learned of those posts while conducting an internal review of the Brandeis coverage. The correspondents failure to disclose a conflict violated Globe policy, and he should not have been assigned to cover the event. The story failed to include coverage of the substance of the remarks made by Michael Oren, Israel's ambassador to the United States, and made no mention of an electronic petition supporting his appearance.

Corcoran has made his blog (on which he covers other issues as well) invitation only, but for the next couple of days, you can get a taste of it through Google's cache.

He's also purged his Twitter feed.http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Atwitter.com%2Fmco...
