The Article Bob Whitaker Won't Read

A most interesting and timely article has just crossed my desk. It is
entitled "The Great Political Correctness Conspiracy Hoax; or How I
Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Thought Police", by Brian Siano
(Skeptic Vol 4 No 3 1996). It describes in detail the ways in which the
putative leaders of the "anti-PC" movement, such as Dinesh D'Souza and
William Bennett, have denounced individuals and institutions as "PC" based
on incidents that were either erroneously reported or never happened at
all. Also covered are the excesses of the American press in misreporting
supposed "PC" excesses (special attention being given to the _Wall Street
Journal_), as well as the rather interesting way in which the "Great
Political Correctness Panic has been promoted and funded... by a handful
of conservative organizations and foundations".

I commend this article to all who have an interest in this subject --
especially to Bob Whitaker, whom I doubt will ever make the effort to find
and read it. Tell you what, Whitaker; send me your fax number via email
and I'll fax it to you on my nickel.

Watch him run from that offer, folks...
