16. No, I didn't say that at all

In America we put a climate scientist on TV or in front of congress and nearly always an equal number if not more climate deniers. Even though the science out put of the two groups and the scientific basis of the two groups is not equal. There is no reason to give stupid an equal voice at the table when they're facts are not equally in validity or valid at all. The goal of American media and American politics these days isn't to inform, it is to keep the controversy alive. From Obama being born in Kenya to the mythical oppression of Christians the stupid have a seat at the table. You could claim they have more than one seat. We as a society don't have to do this, it certainly doesn't serve us, and yet we allow it without question. They claim they are being fair to the other side (as if truth had a side), but the fairness doctrine only works one way, for the stupids favor. When the stupid lose an argument (and they always lose) they never go away because our media and politics guarantees they don't have to.
