Re: Valid piece ... But ...

JK, your points are all valid, but I think you might be misinterpreting @InjusticeFacts intentions.

@InjusticeFacts (who I've had dealings with) is clear and plain about it's 'open' policy of allowing just about anybody to 'quote' a fact. Many, if not most, of these will have little or no source data - but my understanding is that the @InjusticeFacts Twitter Feed is intended to provoke thoughts and discussion. Call him a social 'agent provocateur' if you will.

I take your point, though, about 'Confirmation Bias'.
