I don't think it has anything to do regarding Tom Bower's protected status. It is about this target of his book. That is why similar nonsense comes from Guardian on a daily basis without regard to balance or fact.

I'm curious what "appalling errors" Pinker made? Taleb and Gray were the only people I know to get any coverage in their attacks on him, and they simply couldn't understand the book

These relate to just one chapter: Several, equally damning, critiques of other chapters

We used to call books like Tom Bowers’ a hatchet job.

Oborne is a queer fish... Admirable in his resignation from the Daily Telegraph over it's coverage of HSBC...

Ignoble in his admiration for the Ayatollah Khomeini as "one of the greatest theologians of all time."
