Responding to Media Matters’ Wednesday attack on our book The Shadow Party (1), my esteemed co-author David Horowitz writes, “Their `review’ of The Shadow Party consists of 7,000 plus words of distortions, misrepresentations, fabrications and tendentious guilt-by-associations, without the slightest effort made to understand the book or reflect seriously on the information it provides.” (2)

UPDATE 08.09.06: Now Media Matters asks, “Horowitz and Poe promised `full-blown’ rebuttals to Media Matters’ debunking of The Shadow Party — so what’s taking so long?” (3) What’s taking so long is that we are preparing an effective rebuttal — that is, a rebuttal which is concise, well-crafted, copiously documented and intellectually honest — rather than one which is verbose, rambling, confusing, digressive, sloppily composed and filled with cheap sophistry, as was Media Matters’ original Bill of Particulars. Let me assure our friends at Media Matters that, when they finally receive our rebuttal, they will regret having asked for it.

It is probably both fair and relevant to note that Media Matters has not yet responded to my critique of their core thesis: “Soros and the Nazis: The Whole Truth, In His Own Words” (4)

UPDATE 08.10.06: More silly taunts from Media Matters, here (5) and here (6). Still no response to our rebuttal regarding the impeccable sourcing for our account of Soros’ relationship with Hungary’s pro-Nazi, wartime regime. We are attempting to carry on a rational discussion with the folks at Media Matters, that is, a discussion which proceeds step by step, one issue at a time. Evidently, they are not interested in having such a discussion. This is telling.
