From Michael Medved's rant about Fahrenheit 9/11 and The Passion of the Christ in today's Wall Street Journal:

... Jew-hatred appears today far more frequently among the America-hating left than on the flag-waving right. Consider the malicious focus by Michael Moore and his antiwar cohorts on a few relatively obscure "neocons" in the Bush administration: The endless invocation of the names Wolfowitz, Perle and Feith fairly reeks of anti-Semitic conspiracy theorizing.

Number of hits for "neocon" on, as determined by AltaVista's "domain" search: 15.

Number of hits for "feith": 13.

Number of hits for "perle": 10.

Number of hits for "wolfowitz": 170.

Number of hits for "cheney": 392.

Number of hits for "rumsfeld": 536.

Number of hits for "rice": 1270.

Number of hits for "bush": 3430.

Number of hits for "saudi": 509.

Medved is quite explicitly calling Moore an anti-Semite, with no evidence to back it up except his own hate-fogged memory and an utterly defective syllogism (there's anti-Semitism on the left, Michael Moore is on the left, therefore Michael Moore is an anti-Semite). That's libel. If I were Moore, I'd sue Medved's ass.
