We are the experts, so shut up 

Eugene Volokh makes an excellent point about the debate between Michelle Malkin and the historians who've published a letter insisting on equal time for Malkin's appearances for her book. I agree with him and with Timothy Burke -- if you want to say Malkin is wrong, then please go ahead, but to make yourselves final arbiters of who is fair and balanced is simply too arrogant to warrant further debate. What is the Historians' Committee for Fairness, anyway -- I can't find reference to it or the committee within the AHA. and where have they been in the Boyd/Powerline debate?
