You sir is obviously a troll on this issue.
I don't know what the normal percentage of editing is, but I can guaranty you that in most cases points is lost or altered the more you edit. Now you
will ask why am I editing every post I do if I'm erasing my points in doing so? Simply because English ain't my native tongue and my answers would be
incoherent at best if I did not edit.
The 95% was a estimation, I assumed Niels Harrit roughly talked 5 minutes in the BBC interview, taken from a 2h8m interview i made a quick estmated
calculation in my head and arrived at 95%. On a calculater it would look like this 5/128*100= 3,9 %. I see I was wrong on making any kind of
assumption because now i feed the troll's. In reality Niels gets to talk about 8,5 minutes, so the real numbers should be 8,5/128*100=6,64%. So they
edited away atleast 93%, I was off only 2% doing estimations, what your point?
And to the post below....It is you who brought up this issue, but I will let it rest now, I've allready pointed out why I see the Journalist as biased
in my initial answer to you. He does not act like an honest Journalist, trying to invent contradictions, and put words in the mouth of the scientist
he did not say. About the troll issue, no I dont see a troll as someone who I disagree with, but someone who on purpose ask's the wrong questions to
derail an issue. I may be wrong and you may just want to "debunk" the message of the post instead of the videos, that is fair enough but not very
constructive. There can't be any doubt to anyone who actually watch the entire second video that the journalist is far to aggressive in hes
questioning, which alone would make him biased, so the amount of editing does'nt really matter if you ask me.
Here is a small though experiment. Compare the interview with a 20 minut exam, where the "teacher" totally ignore the 18m36s you did superb, and
instead focus on and give you you'r grade based entirely on the 1m24s where you did'nt do flawless, is this biased?
