Setting The Record Straight
Campus Watch corrects false allegations made against it.
Beth Slovic of Willamette Week in Portland, Oregon, did well to cover a local story on Stanford professor of Middle East studies Joel Beinin's latest flirtation with Portland State University. But she commits an all-too-common error in claiming that Campus Watch is affiliated with David Horowitz, and that our concern is with left-right politics:
Campus Watch has no affiliation whatsoever with David Horowitz. Rather, CW is a project of the Middle East Forum, a nonprofit Philadelphia think tank.
Moreover, our concerns are not those of the "right-wing," but of anyone who objects to the sloppy, tendentious scholarship that unfortunately characterizes much of today's Middle East studies establishment.
