Dinesh D'Souza Awarded Special MacArthur Grant

Chicago (UPI): In a news conference today at Water Tower Place, the MacArthur Foundation's awards committee chair, Judy Solter, announced a special award for journalist and Hoover Institution scholar-in-residence Dinesh D'Souza. The $200,000 no-strings award is separate from the foundation's well-known so-called "genius" awards, announced earlier this fall.

D'Souza, reached at his office in Palo Alto via text message, expressed his gratitude to the foundation. He stated that the funds will enable him to continue his current work in establishing that the cultural left is responsible for the slave trade and the Great Depression. D'Souza's book The Enemy at Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11 is widely believed to have spawned research in numerous other countries, such as Japan, where victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki have investigated links between President Truman's decision-making process and Michael Moore's film Fahrenheit 911.
