Shifting the burden of proof — in the wrong direction

I haven’t read Cass R. Sunstein’s new book, “On Rumors: How Falsehoods Spread, Why We Believe Them, What Can Be Done,” so I’m withholding judgment. But I want to read it, soon. Because if this is true, Obama has gone a czar too far and Sunstein never should have been confirmed. As Marla Singer writes, “‘Prove the content is not libelous’ is rather a troublesome contention.” To say the least.

(I confess I hadn’t heard that he had been confirmed. Apparently it happened last month while everyone was running around talking about health or something.)
