Intellectual honesty

I made a comment on a post by Ed Brayton. Just in case the comment doesn't stick around, here it is.
I stopped reading at

legally stipulating that the information it contains is accurate, which makes it definitive in this situation.

because legally definitive isn't the same thing as factually definitive.

I never thought much of Woody Jenkins. But you don't advance your arguement by claiming that legally stipulating something makes it factually accurate. People legally stipulate to things that aren't true often and you should know that. Pretending otherwise makes you just as intellectually dishonest as Woody Jenkins is.

Your conclusions are probably right. But try an intellectually honest arguement next time.
