Blogger Juan Cole is pretty far left, and I very seldom agree with almost anything he has to say. Still, I don't wish to deny him the right to say it. MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, does good work exposing the extremism of portions of the Arab media, and I recommend their web site to you. However, they are now threatening to sue Cole for a blog post critical of their organization. I have read the post, and it's not worth a lawsuit. Let Cole spout his leftist rhetoric, and I'll keep blowing my conservative horn, and it'll all come out in the wash...if you think such lawsuits are a threat to free speech, as I do, email email@example.com and let them know (hat tip to pennywit).
