I haven’t seen much in the news about this. Norman Finkelstein was recently denied tenure for blatantly political reasons. According to RonL he didn’t deserve tenure, but his colleagues thought he did. I’m not too up on what is necessary to get tenure, but it seems to me that you can’t expect more than several books. At the least, there was a blatantly political effort to deny him tenure. Now this.
Unfortunately, Glenn Greenwald misidentifies the neocons as right-wing which we know they are not. I tried to register to post a comment on this, but for some reason it wouldn’t let me.
