- ITT, we use generalizations to manufacture news.Nov 20, 2012
- TC says in its g+ about page "Breaking technology news and analysis: the web, mobile, and much more.
TechCrunch, founded on June 11, 2005, is a blog dedicated to obsessively profiling and reviewing new Internet products and companies. In addition to covering new companies, TechCrunch profiles existing companies that are making an impact (commercial and/or cultural) on the new web space."
So i don't understand what this article has to do with any of the above perhaps except for the "and much more" part.
In a nation that is clearly divided down the center with little sway from election to election and the Present wining by a narrow margin in the popular vote I do not understand why some sites seem to go out of their way to politicize issues and turn off 48 to 52 % of the population given the election cycle to their message.
My advice? Stay away from the politics and report on what you say your mission is, as stated above in the quotes In the meanwhile I'll be looking at tech sites who focus more on tech and less on partisan bashing. kthxsbaiNov 20, 2012
- Luke+2The premise of the study shows that people tend to disbelieve what goes against their beliefs which shouldnt come as a surprise to anyone. The real issue though is that in the political realm the left likes to throw these 2 specific issues of global warming an abortion at the right and then make grandiose extrapolations about the implications. The right keeps political talk political in general. So the issue isnt that one side is less scientific than the other, its that one side (the left) likes to cherry pick issues to cause false controversy and deflect from the main issues.Nov 20, 2012

- People do have an infinite capacity to believe what they want to believe. Generally, I believe public policy should be pragmatic and science based while remaining sensitive to private beliefs. Sure this is idealistic on multiple levels, but we need benchmarks.Nov 20, 2012
