FOF--mainstream media treats anti-science as valid opinion

This is SETTLED SCIENCE--we need to stop wasting our time arguing this SETTLED question. The MAINSTREAM MEDIA has to stop giving this lie airtime as if its a valid opinion. Journalists who don't shut this lie down as soon as it comes up are in flagrant violation of the ethics of their own profession.

This goes for anti-science lies by Global Warming deniers, as well.

Read my take:

The mainstream media, yet again, treats wild anti-science as valid “opinion.” � Feast of Fun:
"This post is initially about Ken Buck, the GOP’s Senate Candidate in Colorado who has made a clear choice to become a Professional “Dumbass;” however, this post is really about the laziness and stupidity in the mainstream media when it comes to allowing anti-science screeds to perpetuate as valid “opinions.”"

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:

"

In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
