"Of course, Professor Nutt is entitled to his opinions. But when he dresses them up as science, he is playing a disengenuous and dangerous game."
- Daily Mail leader column.
The Mail has yet to hold forth on whether it is dangerous and disengenuous to claim that age, asbestos, aspirin, babies, baby bottles, being black, bubble bath, candle-lit dinners, childlessness, Chinese medicine, dogs, eggs (free range), Facebook, false nails, the Internet, menstruation, metal, milk, older fathers, pastry, peanut butter, rice, sausages, sex, shaving, soup, space travel, turning on the lights at night to go to the toilet, vitamins, the war in Iraq and Worcestershire sauce give you cancer.
Or whether it's dangerous and disengenous to present the views of a lone "moral" campaigner as a reason to not vaccinate girls against cancer.
Or whether it's dangerous and disengenous to repeatedly ignore the scientific evidence and suggest that the MMR jab causes autism (including a widely read columnist "dressing up her opinion as science").
Or whether it's dangerous and disengenous to fiddle the facts and distort the truth and sometimes just print outright lies in order to make Muslims look bad.
But I'm sure they'll address this in a holier-than-thou editorial in the near future.
