Tom Tomorrow nails it again

I've had some online debates with some crazed right wing lunatics on some boards and, yeah, it's pretty pointless. At one point once when evolution came up I stopped debating and just said, "You're wrong." There will be no "equal time" when there is no science that backs up a belief that is being passed off as an opinion.

This quote from Tom Tomorrow about journalism helps: "That’s how right-wingers want to live, in an information-free zone in which facts are supplanted entirely by opinion, in which there’s no need to hear from a reporter on the ground in Fallujah as long as Rush Limbaugh has an opinion on the topic. But it’s not how I want to live."
