The peril of postmodernism: manufacturing and distorting facts, evidence and history in the cause of politically correct ideology

In Disarming History: How an award-winning scholar twisted the truth about America's gun culture - and almost got away with it Joyce Lee Malcolm calmly and clearly lays out the timetable that led to the exposure of fraud perpetuated by Emory University history professor Michael Bellesiles in his book Arming America: The Origins of a National Gun Culture.

Bellesiles is only the latest in an ever-growing line of academic historians and scientists found guilty of manipulating the evidence in order to produce works of ideologically driven political correctness. The liberal intelligentsia and media lauded the book when it first came out... now they are not so vocal.
Real historical writers probe factual uncertainties, but they do not invent convenient facts and they do not ignore inconvenient facts. People are entitled to their own opinions, but not to their own facts.
William Kelleher Storey, Writing History
