The New Yorker website editor Nicholas Thompson tells the New York Times that Jonah Lehrer is still employed by the magazine. “[He] declined to elaborate, saying, ‘This is wrong. He knows it’s a mistake. It’s not going to happen again.'”
Mr. Lehrer, reached by telephone, expressed remorse about the self-borrowings but declined to comment further. “It was a stupid thing to do and incredibly lazy and absolutely wrong,” he said.
