Setting The Record Straight
Campus Watch corrects false allegations made against it.
Campus Watch Responds:
In an article accusing the right of mendacity and that mocks the term "journalist" being applied to young conservatives, Eleanor J. Bader spins conspiracy theories and falsely asserts ties between Campus Watch and other groups. Specifically, her charge that Leadership Institute (LI) personnel have acted as a "matchmaker" for relations between CW (and the Middle East Forum) and donors is entirely false. At no time has anyone from CW or MEF spoken with LI personnel or "connections" about foundations, individual donors, or anything related to development. Bader's assertion is false and without merit.
It also offers a window into the sloppy, conspiratorial, paranoid style of a certain kind of far left activist, for whom villainization trumps empirical fact. Such people are tiresome and can normally be ignored without consequence. But when CW is maligned in this way, we must respond. Perhaps next time Bader will bother to do some basic research before sitting down to write.
