Prof. Beinen's "truthiness"

Original post made by Sheree Roth, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Sep 8, 2006

Don Kazak (Our Town, Aug. 30 Palo Alto Weelky) doesn't consider Stanford professor Joel Beinin as dangerous as David Horowitz does in "The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America."

Sheree Roth expresses more truth in her brief letter than contained in Don Kazak's entire column.

Don Kazak's column was not really a piece of journalism--it was more of a fluff piece written by a starry eyed admirer.
There were no real facts in the article--just hearsay by Beinin and positive comments put to paper by the admiring journalist.

Don Kazak is why I no longer bother to read the Weekly. His "stories" are just exaggerated fluff. He's been wrong many times. Why would anyone read his drivel?
