Like little stars.
Just a quick question: Will Andrew Breitbart, the world’s most ethical crusading journalist, ever get around to issuing a correction to this post that appeared at his BigGovernment.com site last week?
Here’s the first paragraph of the post, by “financial writer” Chriss W. Street:
Nature Journal of Science, ranked as the world’s most cited scientific periodical, has just published the definitive study on Global Warming that proves the dominant controller of temperatures in the Earth’s atmosphere is due to galactic cosmic rays and the sun, rather than by man. One of the report’s authors, Professor Jyrki Kauppinen, summed up his conclusions regarding the potential for man-made Global Warming: “I think it is such a blatant falsification.”
The first sentence is a mischaracterization of a summary of a study. Breitbart could conceivably argue that it doesn’t warrant a correction, even though it’s intentionally misleading. But the second sentence is straight-up factually wrong. As Mark Follman writes at Mother Jones, Professor Jurki Kauppinen is not one of the report’s authors. He just isn’t.
New York Times “Dot Earth” writer Andrew Revkin submitted a correction request to Mediabugs, a media error-tracking site, but, shockingly, Breitbart has yet to fix the post.
So you should drop Andrew a line, maybe? He’s pretty busy, destroying the institutional left and having insane feverish conversations with imaginary military dudes about the coming violent civil war with liberals, but I’m sure he will get around to fixing this blatant factual error once it is pointed out to him.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
