Many people have written to me about my brief note on the Progressive. I did meet the staff of the magazine and liked them. I back then made suggestions about the website and the staff clearly were sympathetic to my opposition to the way Rothschild has turned the website--if not the magazine but I have not seen it in a long time--into a collection of his musings on various issues of the day--something you are entitled to do on a blog. Norman Finkelstein sent me this link which contains exchanges that he had with the Progressive. And I wish that Rothschild has devoted as much time and energy to document crimes of occupations around the world instead of trying to prove--on the most flimsy of grounds--that Finkelstein is a "celebrity" of an anti-Semitic group.
