The Smearing of Juan Cole continues

Last week it was John Fund. This time it's Hitchens.

Juan Cole: "Christopher Hitchens owes me a big apology."

Jane takes Slate to task over it.

"It's embarassing enough that Slate continues to publish the discredited Hitchens. The far right is already doing a St. Vitus dance over Cole's potential appointment to a Yale history chair, and now Slate has handed them an article full of typical Hitchens bullshit with which to bludgeon him."
