Alterman vs. Blumenthal

In The Nation, Eric Alterman panned Goliath, Max Blumenthal's book on Israel, and Max has been tweeting away.

Some Nation writers are known for their feuds with their colleagues: Alexander Cockburn vs. Christopher Hitchens, Eric Alterman, and Katha Pollitt; Hitchens vs. Pollitt and Cockburn; Alterman vs. Cockburn, and now Blumenthal. Hitchens even quit the magazine.

I can't think of anything specific, but Alterman gets on my nerves.

I'll call on Mon. a.m.

The remarkable thing is that there is open debate in The Nation on the subject of Israel. When we went on the first Nation cruise no one would discuss Israel, and that was kind of the way it was on the mainstream left until recently.
