Frankly speaking, I agree that it is most important for people with ME/CFS to have a very clear idea of what the science has established, what it hasn't and what is somewhere in between.
However, As for the general public, I think it is necessary to play politics to a degree, to emphasize the most serious facts AND possibilities. This is like blowing air on a fire you are struggling to light after years of no wood or wet wood.
Some issues in the world are already raging fires, attracting masses of attention and resources. Example: terrorism. Other issues deserve serious attention and resources but don't get it--like ME/CFS. In this case it is politically smart and probably even politically necessary to emphasize not only every fact at your disposal but also to make a compelling story for people to respond to, which connects the dots.
Dr. Mikovits, in my opinion, does both very well, as both a skilled scientific researcher and as a political spokesperson. We need both aspects very much if we are ever to get out of the sidelines and our long standing helplessness.
