WHERE DOES DEEPA KUMAR, THE RUTGERS PROFESSOR who led those First Amendment-crushing protests against Condoleeza Rice, go to celebrate her victory? Why, the Kremlin’s favorite TV outlet in the U.S., Russia Today, of course. Kumar teaches journalism and “media studies” (whatever that is) at Rutgers and is the author of “Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire.” Can you guess which country is the villain in Kumar’s rendering? That’s just one of the Kumar gems unearthed by my Washington Examiner colleague, Chuck Hoskinson, who humbly refers to himself as a “student of the Middle East.” Don’t believe him, he’s an expert.
