David Frum expresses contempt here for three blogger-journalists who "have suddenly deputized themselves to serve as censors of offensive anti-Jewish speech" in the matter of Gregg Easterbrook. He fails to point out, however, that each of the writers he cites -- Eric Alterman, Mickey Kaus, and Joshua Micah Marshall -- has tied himself in knots trying to give Easterbrook the benefit of the doubt. Alterman, Kaus, and Marshall all conclude that Easterbrook is no bigot. Why didn't David Frum bother to notice that?
