From The Atlantic:
The settlement is the culmination of a bitter battle between the two sides that has stretched nearly two years. As I wrote when SPLCâ€™s original report,Â A Journalistâ€™s Manual: Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists, was published,Â Nawazâ€™s inclusion was baffling and difficult to defend. SPLC did not grant Nawazâ€™s demand for a retraction, but it did make some edits to his entry while defending his inclusion. Then, in April, the group removed the guide altogether.
