Setting The Record Straight
Campus Watch corrects false allegations made against it.
Campus Watch Responds:
The execrable Max Blumenthal, joined by the young anti-Israel activist Julia Carmel, proves that his writings are based on old news rather than updated research. In the space of a single paragraph, he falsely charges CW with having dossiers, which he also calls blacklists, on professors. Had he bothered to look, he would have found that CW posted several dossiers at its founding in 2002, but removed them after a couple of weeks after they had served their purpose. And that was it. Moreover, they weren't "blacklists," they were accurate, up-to-date, and factual (which is more than we can say of Blumenthal & Carmel's work). So that those who "appear" (present tense) on the lists have not received "violent threats and hostile email," there being no lists for the past thirteen years. We also questioned then, and do so now, the veracity of any claims that threats of violence emanated from any part of CW's site, then or now. Given these authors' sloppy work on simply knowing what's on a site now compared to what was there many years ago, how is one to believe their more spectacular claims about anything?
