I prefer to think that diet researchers are simply mean to the core. How else would you explain their insistence that you love rutabaga and shun roast beef?
If you want examples of liberal bias in the reporting of “facts,” just look at the treatment of the shootings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. The media carefully overlooked the fact that the “unarmed” Martin was beating George Zimmerman’s head on the sidewalk when he was shot, and that the “unarmed,” Brown, who outweighed Officer Darren Wilson by more than eighty pounds, had reached through Wilson’s car window and tried to choke him and take his pistol.
The result was riots and protest and the perpetuation of myths of racial discrimination and police oppression, although investigation by local officials, state authorities and the FBI all backed up Zimmerman’s and Wilson’s stories. For this, the liberal media bears most of the responsibility. As Jonathan Swift said in 1710:

I, too, am reasonably pleased with USPS, with one exception. We recently moved from one zip code to the other in a two-zipcode town in suburban Atlanta. Both zip codes are distributed from one post office (oddly, in a third town). However, mail forwarded from one zip code to the other goes to Tampa, FL to get the yellow sticker! It can take a week or more to cross the floor in the distributing PO. It’s a great incentive to tell your correspondents to change your address, though.
One of the great defects of modern civilization is that we have tried to arrest the progress of Darwinian evolution by protecting maladapted creatures like iPhone zombies.

And increased knowledge of the genome of viruses and bacteria has enabled the development of better-targeted antibiotics, instead of trolling the world of microbiology looking for things to throw at the problem.
I would be willing to award citizenship to anyone who served honorably in the military for two years, or one year in a hazardous-pay job, i.e. combat or dangerous duty.
