Where's Greg Gutfeld When You Need Him?

So David Gergen thinks that Newsweek should burn its source for the Koran item.

What a boneheaded idea. There's no indication that Michael Isikoff's source, whom Isikoff has apparently known for years, deliberately misled the Newsweek reporter. In fact, it's not even clear that the source was entirely wrong.

In return, Newsweek should violate one of the most sacred journalism conventions and ruin the guy's career in the process?

That seems like a great way for Newsweek never to get another phone call returned....
