Bachmann was right, ‘Time’ was wrong

Don Surber

On August 18, 2011, Bryan Walsh, the self-described “senior writer for TIME magazine, covering energy and the environment — and also, occasionally, scary diseases,” explained to the world, “Why Michele Bachmann’s $2-a-Gallon Gas Promise Is a Fantasy.” Time put the political diatribe in its Science section

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

A graduate of Princeton with a degree in English, Bryan Walsh lectured the public on how “virtually the entire field of Republican presidential candidates has decided to abandon science — with the exception of Jon Huntsman, whose negligible support has to be measured with an electron microscope — I could easily spend the next 15 months shooting down every false statement they make about climate change, energy policy or evolution.”

He chose $2 gasoline. He chose poorly. A little over 3 years later, Congresswoman Bachmann is right and Bryan Walsh, the self-described scientist with a B.A. in English, was and still is wrong…

…Time magazine owes Michele Bachmann an apology not for saying she was wrong when she was right, but rather for implying that her science was off. News organizations need to quit pretending political opinions are science.
