I criticized various professors in the school paper, in campus debates and in the press. I don't know when criticizing professors became out of bounds. Or how my criticizing them is framed as punching down.

I never called for any professor to be fired. I've never in my life heckled a professor or any speaker in any context. I took classes in the Middle East Studies department, including one taught by Joseph Massad. I got an A. (That I have to revisit this is mind-blowing to me.)

It's obviously not true. All you had to say was "by Glen Greenwald."
