Ann Coulter: “Columbia history professor Eric Foner claimed Radosh’s book on the Rosenbergs violated the canons of historical scholarship. As any infant knows, one of the canons of historical scholarship is to mindlessly hold as an article of faith the manifestly absurd belief that the Rosenbergs were innocent. It is an affront to good scholarship to suggest otherwise. Most devastatingly, Foner – once president of the American Historical Association – accused Radosh of ‘liberal anti-communism.’ Other historians have even stooped so low as to call Radosh a ‘conservative.’ One editor said he believed Radosh was a CIA agent.

“American college students are learning history from people who believe the Rosenbergs were innocent idealists and Radosh is a CIA agent. (How are the grades for students who write term papers saying the Rosenbergs were guilty?)”
