Contrasting science journalism

Postby a_haworthroberts » Tue Dec 16, 2014 10:25 pm

This is inaccurate and rather sensationalist (I see it's at the top of tomorrow's traditionally crowded front cover of the paper copy of the Telegraph):

Whoa vote UKIP just in case those pesky Martians decide to come over here Roger and Ashley. Clinging to the underside of a astronauts pod tsk tsk!

And whilst we're on the subject of UKIP Nigel Farage got a honorary mention in the End Violence Against Women Coalitions sexist of the year award. But only a mention nowhere near the prizes. But guess who did get a prize? Third prize no less? Richard (oh rapes not that bad, not as bad as nativity plays or hymns in school, now get your tits out dearie and make some tea) Dawkins. Ha ha ha. I've been saying that for years!

Behind David Dinsmore of the Sun and Grand Theft Auto Five. So technically second cos GTA isn't a person it's a game.

I don't recall discussing UKIP in this thread!

However I HAVE discussed the apparent idiocy of Roger Helmer here (culminating at post 110) along with the rank hypocrisy of that fraud and charlatan Piers Corbyn who apparently thinks he can accurately forecast the UK's coming weather:
