    Harvard University professor Alan Dershowitz alleged Friday that Media Matters has "crossed the line into anti-semitism" by tolerating an employee who uses charged language to criticize supporters of Israel.
    Dershowitz, a liberal Democrat who is a staunch supporter of Israel, first started speaking out against the liberal media watchdog group last month. He went further in an interview on Fox News, saying Friday that Media Matters has crossed the line into "bigotry."

    The professor directed his complaints at one staffer in particular, M.J. Rosenberg, for downplaying the Iranian nuclear threat and repeatedly employing the term "Israel firster" -- an epithet that implies somebody's loyalties are to Israel before America.

    I used to like Alan Dershowitz but I'm not so sure since Finkelstein raised some allegations about a book of his.

    Why don't you investigate for yourself instead of having your opinions provided to you? Are you not capable of thinking for yourself or are you afraid of going off the group think reservation and learning to form your own opinions?

    He clearly needs the help.

    On the bright side, I explain how to think, not what to think.

    Dershowitz is a noramlly a strong supporter of Israel, but he will still vote for Obama so his support only goes so far.
