Thumbs Down to Robert Fisk

THUMBS DOWN to Robert Fisk, Middle East correspondent for London's Independent newspaper and veteran Israel-basher, for anti-American and anti-Israel comments in his Nov, 19, 2002 appearances on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" and WBUR's "On Point" (WBUR is a Boston NPR affiliate).
