The Anti-Semite Card, Again

Goldfarb argues that my criticism of Fred Hiatt for firing Dan Froomkin and his increased publication of neocon boilerplate is a function of anti-Semitism, and that I am one with Khamenei in my belief that the "Jews" control the media. These vile smears are designed to police the discourse some more; and it is tedious to address them. But there is an enormous distinction between neoconservatives and Jews, and Froomkin is Jewish as is his most eloquent defender, Glenn Greenwald. My issue is with a specific brand of ideology that has revealed itself to be degenerate and corrupt these past few years, and immune to taking responsibility for its errors and being accountable for its failures. Rewarding such fanaticism and promoting the least intellectually honest, while canning the underdog blogger, is unhealthy in an important paper like the Post. And my concern is that one of the few people at the Washington Post who was ballsy enough to call them on it has been fired.
