Another Washington Post staffer has joined the pile-on against columnist George Will’s climate-change denial. Fellow columnist Eugene Robinson lambasted Will on the Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC Wednesday night, and also called out the editors who let him get away with it.

“What George Will did was cherry-pick a sentence in a report, you know, be very persnickety in the way he parsed his sentences, and end up making it sound as if the report had said the exact opposite of what it actually said,” said Robinson. “He was persnickety enough that his editors, who also happen to be my editors, felt he didn’t quite cross the line. I thought he did.”

Robinson joins two reporters at the Post who explicitly cited Will’s factual errors earlier this week. And last week political cartoonist Tom Tooles also poked fun at Will.
