    This article implies very strongly that I am an unethical lawyer--which is a career completely unrelated to my parody account--simply because I questioned the scope and quality of a "fact check" of a NYT story by a tech reporter. Not only was that story later proven to be completely false in it‘s causality, but the quote used by the reporter was taken completely out of context, and the article nearly (or even possibly) defamatory, the "American Lawyer" doesn‘t seem bound by rules of ethics about honesty itself. Please review the following post and explanation. If these are not sufficient for you to remove this defamatory article, I will explore more coercive means to do soi including possible claims for damages. I will NOT have my reputation destroyed by bad journalism. Thank you. me/p7N5ao-n
