My impression from the phone conversation was that this was the chronology:
1) Jill Filipovic from Feministe tells WSJ that I worked at EAP&D
2) WSJ reporter calls EAP&D, and the firm says I had my offer rescinded.
3) WSJ reporter emails me saying they’re going to run a story on it tomorrow.
Believe me, the last thing I wanted was this to be public. I just want to be left alone.
I did not know where Anthony worked, and I took no steps to get him fired. Apparently someone did post his firm on a 600-plus comment thread two months ago. I didn’t do anything with that information, and didn’t even pay much attention to it when it was posted. I don’t remember reading it. I may have, or it may have gotten lost in the 600-comment shuffle. Either way, I didn’t commit it to memory, and I didn’t pass it on to anyone else. If you had asked me two days ago where Ciolli was employed, I wouldn’t have known. I definitely didn’t contact Ciolli’s firm, WSJ, or anyone else.
The WSJ reporter emailed me yesterday afternoon telling me that Ciolli had his offer rescinded, that the WSJ law blog was doing a story on it, and could he call me for a quote. That’s how I found out about it.
So, sorry AutoAdmit posters (and Anthony), but you’re gonna have to find someone else to blame for this one.
