Shame on “All Things Considered” for stooping so low you would give far-right activist David Horowitz time to blast Howard Zinn and everything he stood for. I’m sure whoever approved this will try to somehow rationalize this disrespect in the name of “balance.” After all, you gave time to Noam Chomsky who you and the mainstream media usually keep off the air. Therefore you had to balance with Horowitz. Such reasoning for guest selection is biased, unfair and totally inappropriate especially under these circumstances. This is not purely a political event where you supposedly  “balance” left and right. The bottom line is you’ve gone way over the decency line by failing to respond with sufficient respect to the death of a great American historian, activist and human being.
