Daniel Levy as Juan Cole

Noah Pollak fact-checks Daniel Levy, and finds his arguments less than persuasive.

I'm all in favor of people looking at facts, listening to interpretations of them, and making up their own minds, including inventing new insights of their own. It's when the pundits begin to mis-state facts, not inadvertently but as a system, that you begin to wonder - first, about them, then about their positions. Well argued positions should withstand fact-checking. Without them, we're sliding out of rational discussion.
