Chomsky hating from beyond the grave
After the Guardian apologized for and withdrew the substantially fradulent Emma Brockes "interview" with Chomsky, reasonable people might have thought that the issue was settled. True, I did receive one overheated and frankly incoherent comment continuing to defend the Brockes piece as proof that Chomsky was intellectually corrupt and dishonest, but I had put this off to the writer being off his meds.
Apparently there are more of these Chomsky-hating dead enders out there and Brian Leiter takes one of them apart in an extrordinarily detailed, instructive and entertaining way. Earlier, Leiter also presented this interesting diagnosis of Chomsky haters.
