Bart Ehrman interview

E vangelical Textual Criticism has posted an Interview with Bart Ehrman. This part of the interview struck me as ironic:
bq. PJW: Do you think that anyone might ever come away from reading Misquoting Jesus with the impression that the state of the New Testament text is worse than it really is?
BDE: Yes I think this is a real danger, and it is the aspect of the book that has apparently upset our modern day apologists who are concerned to make sure that no one thinks anything negative about the holy Bible.
It is as if Ehrman claims that he didn’t intend to make NT textual criticism sound worse than it is and yet that seems to be the aim of _Misquoting Jesus_.
