Editor's Note: On Friday, Vanity Fair issued a press release highlighting excerpts of a piece in their January issue on neoconservative supporters of the war in Iraq who today, unsurprisingly, have some negative things to say about how the war is going and how the Bush administration has been handling it.
In the wake of the press release which has gotten considerable play on the Internet some of those neoconservatives highlighted in the article have responded to the excerpts and its misrepresentations, in some cases, of what they said. We collect some of those reactions including from Eliot Cohen, David Frum, Michael Ledeen, Richard Perle, and Michael Rubin below.

Not surprised one bit.
Russert never reveals that his wife is an editor at this magazine.
Not only that, but the interviewees were promised that VF wouldn't release this until AFTER the election. VF lied, big surprise.
True...which makes me wonder why any of these individuals agreed to speak with VF to begin with.
This is the random "Hey, I know you people so come check out my thread" ping :)
Thanks for the post. If Vanity Fair wishes to be a liberal Democrat magazine, that's fine. But for them to claim any semblance of journalistic objectivity after this is a sham and a disservice to their readers.
I think O'Reilly has it right when he says he doesn't do written press interviews because of just this type of manipulation. At least in video, there's a copy for the record.

Exactly! And even then, you have to make sure the video interview is not edited.
The magazine is called "Vanity" for a reason. These neos are careerists, and couldn't resist the lure.
Ann Coulter wouldn't have been fooled by the blandishments...
