It was an Op-Ed, Not an Article
Here's Discoevery Institute blogger John West opening his own blog entry on the subject:
Today's Wall Street Journal is running a shocking article reporting on an alleged campaign of harassment and intimidation by Darwinists at the taxpayer-funded Smithsonian Institution.
As anyone who reads the Wall Street Journal knows, there is a big difference between the news section and the editorial section. The former is one of the best news divisions in the country. The latter is cartoonishly right-wing and unreliable. It was just an honest bit of carelessness by Mr. West to confuse the two, right?
And here's Wests's closing:
And people wonder why some scientists are afraid to openly express their skepticism of Darwin's theory?
You can openly express your skepticism all you want. Just don't embarrass the people you work for by abusing their trust. Don't use the journal you edit as a platform for promoting poor scholarship.
