Fixing the fight

Blogger/professor Michael Berube decided to engage in an email dialogue with neo-McCarthyite David Horowitz and found that his answers weren't exactly faithfully reproduced. Ezra writes: "I'm no Horowitz fan, but holy hell, I didn't think the guy was this intellectually dishonest. Challenging someone to a written debate, editing their answers down, and then publishing the exchange with comments that you wish your opponent had participated more fully -- when he did and you cut it!" (Ezra Klein)
