Well, obviously a "smear" is a lie. So exactly what lies were told about Van Jones? Come on, Van... it's not enough to simply say "they smeared me". You need to say what were the smears. You need to be specific, explain, etc.
Really, there were no "smears". Just exposure of Van Jones's own words and actions. How is telling the truth a "smear"?
Ah, never mind. After all, Van Jones is a hardcore Leftist, and, as such, is a liar. All Leftists lie- it's part of the essence of Leftism. When they're caught with their pants down, they accuse those who caught them and told people about it of being liars.
