Need Needed Someone Who Understands
This To ‘Splain it To Them
This weekend I was startled and very pleased to see the financial shows on Fox Business discussing some of the issues about “ClimateGate”.
Sadly, their “panel” was up against a talking points troll and they let him run rampant unchallenged. Repeatedly he ranted about “it’s all Peer Reviewed PEER REVIEWED!!!”
As though that granted immunity from the issue.
And answer came there none.
Someone needs to let the news guys know that it was the apparent Suborning of Peer Review that makes this so horrid. That these were the peer reviewers and they were doing it fraudulently (IMHO) with attempts to blackball dissenters and what looked like blackmail editors (with threats of boycotts).
Rather like attending a police brutality hearing and having the defence shout: These are policemen POLICEMEN!!! Someone ought to have said: Yes, and that is the whole point…
So I’m still wondering just how long it will take for the Lame Stream Media to catch up with the rest of the world. (Don’t get me wrong, I really like Fox Business and CNBC and Bloomberg for business news, and even on regular news they are often ahead of the LSM outlets since money waits for no one… But on Climategate they are sorely behind the curve.)
UPDATE: The following days have had Fox Business redeem themselves. Two different interviews on two different shows highlighting the peer review “issues”. Good On Ya Fox!
