The age of Tweet Fisking is here.

Longtime readers may be familiar with the expression "fisking". It's basically a point-by-point refutation of a news item or opinion column. Since the mainstream media goes to considerable lengths to sanitize Cuba's castro dictatorship we spend a lot of time refuting their assertions. But the age of Twitter means these "journalists" or "Cuba Experts" are now accessible. So introducing the Tweet Fisk. Today we take Daniel Serwer to task for his column Politico. "Serwer is a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and a scholar at its Center for Transatlantic Relations. The piece is entitled, "The Dangers of a Cuban Collapse."

    Good job. Professorships of "international studies" are akin to those of "feminist" studies and "ethnic" studies...... all sending chills up our collective spines thinking what they're feeding daily to their college kids.

    Henry, he's from Hopkins, which is known to turn out beyond-dubious operators, and you're not part of his target audience, so he doesn't care about your issues. Still, he deserves to be fisked within an inch of his life.
