Yvette Lessard replied to Arron's discussion 'How the media hides behind "balance" when covering global warming' in the group Atheists who love Science!
"As a journalist hopeful, this "fair and balanced" bullshit drives me even more crazy than it must drive you. Accuracy is forgotten in the media because accuracy offends, makes people uncomfortable, and is never balanced. Life isn't…"

"I think the problem is slightly wider based than simply an "equal opportunity" based media coverage of important or controversial ideas. There exists this mid-ground idea that as a result of living in a multi-perspective culture…"

About Me:
I find that just thinking about the fact that I am a tiny piece of the universe observing itself to be a profound "spiritual" experience. Nothing more. Nothing less. Why is that not enough for others? I am disgusted by the drivel that passes for discussion on most/all tv.
Dawkins and Adams are a couple of my heroes both in their respective fields and in their outspoken atheism.
I am returning to college to get that elusive degree that will allow me to teach science to high school kids.
I am a soccer referee and often say that it is my religion, since I go somewhere on Sunday and have people tell me what I do is wrong though I know I am right.
Why are you here?
Share experiences, through discussions.
Find a way forward.
Bring harmony without a crutch.
Create dissonance and see what falls apart.
Find others who share my view of the world.
Help myself and others understand my view of the world.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one

To be published in Nature is to have survived rigorous, fact checking, data… Continue
