A Necessary Job Done Badly

Claudio Lomnitz and Rafael Sánchez have done a poor job of raising some legitimate concerns about possible anti-semitism in the rhetoric of Chavez. I say "poor job" because, although the problem is real, the article reeks of bias and resorts repeatedly to misinformation, inuendo, and guilt by association. Fortunately many of the commenters call them on this, but they flub their opportunity to correct themselves, and their response in a subseqent article is just self-serving rather than appropriately self-critical.
