David Brooks of the New York Times says:

I look around the Web these days and find that Newsweek's retracted atrocity story has sent everybody into cloud-cuckoo-land. Every faction up and down the political spectrum has used the magazine's blunder as a chance to open fire on its favorite targets, turning this into a fevered hunting season for the straw men.
It's good to hear someone refuse to buy into either side's irrationality, or the ravings of politicians, pundits, and government officials trying to make hay out of the Newsweek-Koran story. Brooks makes sense. Read the column.
