Academic Standards

Just in case you needed (yet) another reason not to believe anything you read from the right wing nuts in the U.S., check out this story of how David Horowitz, known for his fight to avoid (anti-conservative) bias in Academia, just made stuff up to support his case and it was repeated faithfully by lots of media outlets. Horowitz admitted that one of his more powerful stories,
"appears to be wrong," and that "our presentation of this case appears now to have had several faults." Horowitz made the concession in an article posted on, his online magazine, on March 15, under the headline, "Correction: Some of Our Facts Were Wrong, But Our Point Was Right."

Actually David, I think maybe you're missing the point.

Update: Timmy at Voice in the Wilderness goes into more detail on this topic, and does well to link to the extensive writings of the Canadian Cynic on Horowitz and co. which can be found: here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

And people say I'm cynical!
