I think TED made the right call. Dragging intensely partisan issues in there can only be done very rarely, lest the credibility of TED itself be subject to partisan subjective conclusions. I have no argument with the numbers in the charts.

The conclusion that should be drawn from those complex numbers is beyond subjective. This is not science as certain as with evolution or physics. Very bright honest people can and do differ on those conclusions. Add in the GOP nonsense and the election year? Kudos. There are plenty of forums out there for this subject. A good one can be found.

They have done talks on income inequality before, so I don't think they are afraid of the issue. I think it's more likely this guy is just a tool who is upset that that he's not getting a prime venue.

So if I submit my cockamamie essay to the Washington Post and they refuse to publish it am I therefor censored? Let him make his own Youtube video.

It's a fake story
TED and inequality: The real story

Today TED was subject to a story so misleading it would be funny... except it successfully launched an aggressive online campaign against us.
