Two Great Debunkings

Mark A. R. Kleiman: Anatomy of a fake scandal writes about the creation of what appears (from all we know) to be a totally fake scandal about Howard Dean's $15K in bank stocks.. Kleiman gets it, I'd say, exactly right.

How sad to see the Wall Street Journal reporters, traditionally models of journalism, descend into the gutter with their colleagues on the NY Daily News (and WSJ editorial page…).

Meanwhile, Josh Micah Marshall elegantly and surgically takes apart the attempt by neocons to label their critics as anti-semites (yes, they really do that—truth is stranger than fiction).

Remember, the real anti-semite is here. Yet have any newspapers cancelled his column? Not likely.
