This particular column so absolutely and clearly manipulates lazy people into believing (by unquestioning acceptance) complete and utter lies.
For example: “Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming, or is this just some meteoric occasion?” CNN’s Deborah Feyerick asked Bill “The Science Guy” Nye, head of the Planetary Society, in a Saturday segment.
The sad part is that it’s not just ditzy news anchors who propagate bad science, it’s bad scientists who propagate ditzy news.
Ransom makes it sound like Nye agrees with the reporter - in truth he made the reporter look like an idiot for asking such a stupid question.
