Tim Lambert does a good job illustrating the moral bankruptcy of a typical anti-liberal – Steve Milloy of junkscience.com and (indirectly) the Cato Institute. My favorite quote from Milloy, attempting to refute a study on gun use, was this:

This was an ecologic epidemiology study, meaning the conclusion is based on very â??macroâ? comparisons of groups of people.

“Very macro” is another way of saying the gun study actually used a broad sample instead of carefully selected “choice cuts” of evidence barely better than anecdotes. It’s worth following some of the links in Lambert’s article, to find more interesting stuff about topics such as Tech Central Station (pro-Microsoft anti-open-source mouthpiece run by a PR firm) and astroturfing on Amazon).
