is curious. I believe Durova here is stating that source-based research is the same thing as original research.
Am I right? Or am I right. Yes. Thank you. No thank you. No thank you.
Have a super duper terrific day.
I have no interest in the idiot-syncrasies of Durova, or JzG, or even SlimVirgin for that matter. If it wasn't those fools and those tools it would be some other fools and some other tools.
But if you look at the Cui Bono Trend of what's going on here you may begin to see a pattern — the types of forces who find Nebbish Urinalism so much easier to control, for all its pretension to radically independent populism, than Professional Journalism, for all its decline in standards that we have witnessed in recent decades.
Let me explain it this way. I just happened to see a news special about Global Warming, a portion of which dealt with the way that the Oil Industry lobbyists appointed to advisory jobs in the Bush Administration freely edit — that is, censor — the reports of top-notch scientists working for national science agencies like NASA.
Now imagine a public information machine that does this anonymously, with no audit trail of the special interests that are responsible for their campaigns of public disinformation.
That is the house that Jimbo built.
