No, I'm prepared to dismiss their editorial judgement for endlessly
reporting junk science and generally ignoring good science (in the climate
area) - which is nothing to do with opinion and everything to do with an
inability/unwillingness to make any kind of sane judgement on the
credibility of their sources.
