And then there is the other side...

I have often disagreed with Margaret Wente on a whole host of issues, and that track record is not going to improve as the result of her latest column that says, basically, that CCSVI is a hoax and "liberation" is no better than snake venom: http://v1.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20100729.escenic_1655171/BNStory/Other/margaretWente.  Her column is long on opinion, conjecture and misrepresentation... and very short on facts.  However, while it means that I don't have to go to the trouble of changing my opinion of her journalistic abilities, it does help to sow confusion for those who would really like some useful information.

  1. I will remain a lady and say that I find her appallingly smug and disgustingly ill-informed. I do not think she deserves to carry the title of journalist. She does not need a snake, she spews her own venom.

  2. I tried to read the comments, but it said that the comment period was closed? I was hoping to see some reader vitriol!
