Dennis Prager on

First, has Newsweek disciplined Fearnow in any way? (I never heard from Fearnow.)

Under the headline "Dennis Prager on Anne Frank: 'I Don't Get My Wisdom from Teenagers,'" the Patheos website's Friendly Atheist page wrote, "Leave it to right-wing commentator Dennis Prager, founder of a fake online 'university' ... to dismiss Frank's comment ... because she was a child and therefore too dumb to understand anything."

There has not been a word on Patheos about Newsweek's correction.
