"Marci McDonald just makes stuff up" writes Ezra Levant

There probably will be a bit of a splash following Ezra Levant's op-ed in the National Post this morning.

However, the conservative activist is doing something that may be of use to non-conservative readers too--citing factual errors in The Armageddon Factor.

He cites "dozens" that he has found, but quotes only a few, which I will be adding to BDBO's own running post of McDonald errata when I have a moment.

Although I would agree with Ezra's critics on the left that it is naughty to scrub one's blog of mistakes without apologizing for them, Levant's efforts in his op-ed moves towards both "sides" in this affair getting to the meat of the matter, namely what exactly is reported accurately and what, if anything may be discounted, which I think is useful.
