The Kozinski smear explained

Lawrence Lessig has a good explanation of what’s going on with the Judge Kozinski kerfuffle. (Via Instapundit.) Here’s the even shorter version: What most press reports (for example) are calling Kozinski’s family’s “publicly accessible Web site” would better be described as their “improperly secured private file server.” He (or someone in his family) chose to store some strange (but not illegal) files in a place he thought was private.

I think it would be a good rule, when reading any media report involving the Internet, simply to assume the report is wrong.
