...because if they'd pulled the piece--which suggests taking violent action against climate change deniers-- when I (and others) told them too, they'd've suffered 24 to 48 hours less grief. But they finally have pulled it, and that's good. So far, the only MSM outlet to pick up has been Leo Hickman's Guardian Blog, which gives a fairly sympathetic account, so hopefully the damage won't be too severe. I still fear, though, that the story will wind up on the Limbaugh show. There's usually a couple days lag between the appearance of this kind of thing in the deniosphere and its appearance on Fox.
Calls to violence, even if intended rhetorically, are never good PR.
