Now this is a fisking. The Skeptical Optimist, always worth reading, takes on Roger Simon and delivers his head on a plate.
Way back when I worked at a library, we called US News & World Report "Useless News and Won't Report."
Some things apparently never change.
This fits in, of course, with sophistry in the media: they aren't reporting reality, but rather their perception of reality in an alternativ universe.
And their assumption of ignorance on the part of the reader is backfiring when readers can publish on their own (like this one here).
