Writer of Retracted Stories Faces Review

By MARK JEWELL AP Business Writer

BOSTON (AP) -- A freelance journalist who authored two online news articles that Technology Review magazine retracted over questions of veracity is also facing review of stories she wrote for other publications.

The journalist, Michelle Delio, is a 37-year-old New York City freelance writer specializing in technology.

Delio said Friday that Technology Review's online version was correct in retracting the two stories because they were based on an anonymous source who misrepresented himself to her.

But she defended the rest of the work she has written over her

15-year career as truthful.

WiredNews.com, for whom Delio has long been a contributor, published a note to readers citing this month's retractions by TechnologyReview.com and saying it had assigned a journalism professor to review articles written by Delio.

The online publication has not, however, removed any of the hundreds of stories Delio has written for it, said Wired News' managing editor Marty Cortinas.

Adam Penenberg, a New York University professor who also writes a media column for Wired News, was to do the review.
