Journalistic integrity

A lot of people -- including me-- have been griping about how journalists feel like they have to be fair, and present "both sides" of an issue. We gripe, because when it comes to something like science and Intelligent Design, there aren't two sides. There's science, and there's fantasy. So a lot of articles in the press elevate ID to an issue, when it isn't one.

So instead of griping, let me instead sing the praises of Robert Sprackland, director of the Virtual Museum of Natural History, and guest columnist for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, who wrote a fine op-ed peice about just why ID is garbage. It appears he's written a book on this topic, too.

Seattle, huh? Isn't that where the ID-shilling Discovery Institute is located?
