I think that's more or less irrelevant and not a very helpful line of
inquiry in either the current case or with respect to the broader issue.
I chatted with her, on the air, and on the phone afterwards. She was
friendly and funny and a bit bemused by it. So, I am sure she did not
add it herself. And I think trying to cast doubt back on her is not at
all what we should be doing here: the error was ours.
I agree. Assuming that someone would insert things into her own
biography for the purpose of facilitating this sort of mischief is to
assume bad faith. I don't doubt that there are people who would do this
kind of thing, but the burden of proof is on the accuser.
