David Neiwert comments on C-SPAN's unprofessional behaviour

Neiwert is a journalist who had previously commented on this issue. This morning, he had posted his take on the way in which C-SPAN has chosen to deal with this. He concludes:

C-SPAN and Holocaust Denial

I'll watch this afternoon and report back. But the signs are not encouraging. So far, C-SPAN's behavior has been not only unprofessional, it is entirely inconsistent with its previously established standards for "balance": When it broadcast conferences of the white-supremacist organizations American Renaissance and Council of Concerned Citizens, it felt no need to "balance" those discussions with opposing viewpoints. One has to wonder why, once again, truth and fact have to contend on an equal footing with lies and vicious slander.
