In what appears to be a malicious prank, the notorious antisemite Kevin MacDonald (the retired psychologist, not the Scottish film director) was incorrectly added as an editor to Noam Chomsky's anthology: The Fateful Triangle.

In addition, this edition contains what seems to me to be an inappropriate listing of "characters" given that Chomsky's work is nonfiction, not fiction.

Removed since editors are not listed on GR where there is a known author

LP (lp27) | 790 comments It's a very strange error all the same, given that the two have fundamentally and diametrically opposed views on Jews and politics. Kevin MacDonald was never an editor of any of Chomsky's works, let alone this one.

Anyway, thanks for the information as well as your help getting that removed.
