Credit where due

David Horowitz's Frontpagemag notes the University of Colorado's adoption of the American Council on Education's "Statement on Academic Rights and Responsibilities" (which we noted here a couple of weeks ago). The story has a funny example of Horowitzian spin:
In an article posted on the ACE website, former State University of New York at Albany president Kermit Hall credits David Horowitz and Students for Academic Freedom with ACE’s proposal and adoption of the statement on student rights in the first place.
Here's how Hall "credited" Horowitz:
“The statement was a pragmatic response by the higher education establishment to the escalating challenge posed by its neo-conservative critics [Nazis] in general and their most ardent advocate [der Fuehrer], David Horowitz, in particular,” Hall writes.
