Does HNN still lean right politically? That might explain the Zinn hate.

I'm not sure, anon -- but I think the voters in that poll were leaning right.

Growing up in the heat of the civil rights movement, I always thought that Claude Bowers, The Tragic Era, was one of the most harmful history books written. It was published about 1928 and took a decidedly anti-reconstruction posture. Bowers painted those who fought for rights of freed slaves in a bad light. Perhaps his "worst offense" was that he wrote so very well and convincingly. I always wondered how many who fought integration with ferocity had read Bowers in their youth. It was left to a later generation of historians to refute Bowers and paint a more accurate picture of the post war era.
