Yglesias on Media Spinning False Debates
This post from Yglesias brings up again an issue I've been concerned about and blogged about before. The media seems to look at every issue as if there are valid arguments on both sides, and, as Yglesias points out, creates false debates. This is particularly true on evolution and climate change. Evolution and climate change are real and factual and have stood the tests that science has thrown at them. Their enemies have almost no credible arguments... but that isn't clear from the way the media covers them.
