If you can't change the rules, and you don't like the truth, then
change the facts.
- do not confirm
- arguments are weighted by column inches, not by merit
- When you intend to do something, you assign a staff and a budget.
you don't, you say you're committed to do it, and then forget about it.
- audit, comprehensive
- convincingly false (specious)
- not, as in "apples and oranges are essentially the same"
- if you believe that, you'll believe anything.
- management teams
- are usually disconnected and often unaccountable
- I was merely...
- ...trying to find an excuse for acting in bad faith. Also
just and only.
- untrue, but unprovable
- peer reviewed
- taken out of context, and probably misleading or wrong. See
- not peer reviewed
- I don't like it, but there's nothing else wrong with it.
- scientific evidence
- provided by a lobbyist. Real evidence is called "evidence",
and doesn't need a modifier to bolster it.
- sound science
- Only a questionable report is described as "sound science". Good
science is reproducible.
