No surprises from the Daily Mail. I hope those who can will comment there.
The Daily Mail is a disgusting old fart, I agree. Oh wait, you were talking about an article!!?
If anyone is able to post in the Mail comments it would be good to include the link to the JHP online edition
Actually a pretty good article. There's no real defense of PACE, and they make it sound like most people found it objectionable from the start
Throwing insults at each other (not just one way).
Whilst the DM might not be people's paper of choice... (eta'd to remove my personal opinions here)...
It at least pays tribute to the "other side of the argument" - and no I'm not reading the whole thing 'cos I'm sure much of it will upset me.
I'm clinging to any positives, however small.
I'm starting to think Coyne knows how to get media attention - no insults, no story.
...the irony being that it's not Coyne we've got to thank for this - it's whichever idiot thought it was a good idea to pass Coyne's emails to The Times.
Best article I've ever read at the Mail to be fair. I could almost believe I was reading a proper paper for a moment.
Do we know who was the third editor who resigned? Strange that only two ever get a mention in all the coverage.
Strange also how many of those with whom we have to contend seem to have made the journey from Trotskyite. There was even once a Secretary of State for Health. He of "Haze of Dope" fame.
Looks like a rewrite of the Times article to me. Funny that they give more space to explaining what at Trotskyite is than to explaining what ME is.
I wonder if any of them were 'plants' within those organizations and once the communist threat was over they showed their true colours by continuing to work for their true masters.
I'm happy with that. If you click on the "StatNews" link it goes straight to Julie Rehmeyer's article, which is brilliant. Plus there's an explanation of what a trotskyite is for those who don't know how to google. I googled "difference between marxist and trotskyite" this morning just to be sure where Fiona Fox and George Davey Smith differ in their former ideologies (they're both pie merchants now).
A juiced up rewrite of the Times article.
For a Daily Mail article I'm quite pleased with that, this whole Angry scientists throw insults angle might be working out quite well in term of giving news outlets a good headline and a reason to cover the story, any publicity is good if it gets more people to look at the journal.
Well they say there's no such thing as bad publicity.
Cunning or inadvertent success (Coyne?) or own goal (BPS crowd) the juicy spat between scientists also manages to get the major issues into the public domain plus advertises the JHP special which I'm pretty sure would have otherwise been ignored by the mainstream media.
Yep, all this can only be good news. Those BPS charlatans have thrived in darkness. All this is going to let the light come pouring in.
Comments by Ms Cooper are great, she's saying she has 'professional qualifications in Stress Management and hold a first class honours Degree in Mental Health/Counselling' but 'Shockingly I've been unable to talk myself out of being so ill I can barely function'.
James Coyne is often an idiot but a useful one.
