re: #80 000G
Inferring that ‘they get bigger money than us’ is a childish argument that absolutely is an inference of conspiracy. Tying Heartland to Jones at this point is the smallest of leaps. It’s the same logic as saying ‘well the mainstream media is biased’ when you point out obviously biased news from right wing sources (primarily Fox). The response basically says ‘yes we are biased, but so are the other guys, but there’s more of them than us, so it’s OK.’
I don’t know what else it could mean. It’s mind numbingly stupid teenage level logic.
Which is what Lakely is saying: Yes we are biased, but so are the other guys, but they get more money than us! Leave Giaver A-Lone! Maybe he could come back and tell me where I’m wrong, but I’m not holding my breath. He did imply he’d have a tough time here: was that some other inference that because he was speaking the truth and we can’t handle the truth, we’d be ninnies about it, or, we’d see through his bullshit and hammer him on it?
What could the answer to that be?
I might as well admit that I’m part way through ‘The Inquisition of Climate Science’ and already riled up. I’m sure Likely will infer that I’m thereby biased (that whole equivocation/projection thing again) but I would stress the he would need to point out any errors in known fact first.
