NPR's Madeleine Brand talks with Slate media critic Jack Shafer about Wednesday's admission by editors of The New York Times that some of the paper's reporting in the run-up to the Iraq war may have been flawed, in part because of "insider" information provided by disgraced Iraqi exile Ahmed Chalabi. Shafer has been calling on the Times to review its coverage of the past year.
