Michael certainly needs no help defending himself from attack. I'm sure the officials at Michigan will also recognize that while Mr. Goldenberg is certainly guilty of polemics (I believe to the detrimant of his arguments), nothing he wrote could in any way be considered libelous by even the loosest definition. Your reaction, however, smacks of tactics extant in Salem, Mass. some 300 years ago.
