Because of this personal subtext, Professor Neusner is often unreliable. For example, the New York Times printed an op-ed piece Professor Neusner wrote attacking, for alleged bias, a presentation an arts service organization had made to the National Endowment for the Arts. In a later op-ed response, the chairman of the Endowment was forced to correct the abundant errors in Professor Neusner’s article, which had been grossly unfair to the arts service organization. Because Professor Neusner’s errors were so egregious, the Times itself, which had relied on Neusner’s account, prefaced the chairman’s response by its own italicized statement, advising Times’ readers that Professor Neusner’s article “was substantially inaccurate.” Since then, Professor Neusner has been unwelcome in the pages of the Times. (See op-ed pages, August 31 and September 20, 1988).
