C-SPAN canceled plans to air a lecture by Holocaust denier David Irving. The network had planned to air a talk by Irving to “balance” a talk by historian Deborah Lipstadt, but after Lipstadt got wind of the plan she refused to allow cameras in to a recent talk she was giving at Harvard. Instead, early this week the network aired a program featuring an interview with a reporter who covered a 2000 trial in which Irving lost a libel lawsuit against Lipstadt and her publisher, Penguin Books, after Lipstadt accused Irving of being a Holocaust denier.
