    Primarily focused on Fox's blog post claiming the Science Media Centre isn't biased, with a lot of specific questions as to what steps they take to ensure that. He also calls out some of the more blatant bullshit:
    The whole blog is well worth a read, as always :D

    Good article. I think it's a pity he didn't quote the tribunal finding showing the harassment/ animal activist story to be the nonsense it is.

    I wonder how long it took for comments to be 'approved' to the original blog?

    I'd given up waiting for mine to appear or be declined. Nifty way of news management that.

    I'm particularly fond of this brief bit in John the Jacks's post; '(apparently one can inoculate oneself against ME by belonging to the Revolutionary Communist Party.)'
    We need a snorting emoji.
