Only a true sceptic could miss the complete hypocrisy of making that remark...

ooops part missing...

To summarise..we are sick of conspiracy followers refusing to believe what the mainstream media report... so we are setting up our own organisation to correct the lies and misinformation the mainstream media hand out about science..

Right so let me get this right... it's perfectly OK to carp on about the media relaying false information and at times downright lies about science...but of course, they would never do it about anything else?
