RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2120Goal: $3500

The Register[edit]

Wow, RW is starting to hit the big time. Better smarten this place up! --Stevo 09:28, 20 June 2007 (CDT)

Heh, was just about to post about the Reg feature, looks like I was beaten to it. That will teach me to spend all day working instead of on the internets...XD Trashbat 16:30, 20 June 2007 (CDT)
There have been a few pick-ups on blogs, etc. on the LA Times story, one by UPI and one by USA Today (a blog). [1] Sterile 10:51, 22 June 2007 (CDT)

Time to create RationalWiki:In the media? humanbe in 11:18, 22 June 2007 (CDT)
Well, a google search on RW throws up a few pages of articles so now might be the time. Trashbat 11:20, 22 June 2007 (CDT)
I'd be more reticent. Since all the articles are to do with conservapedia, maybe make it a subsection on this article, but we'd just be repeating ourselves cos we'd have to mention each article in the cp pages. I think until (if) the scope of this place gets wider then we should hold off a bit. maybe. δαιισρΗταλκ 11:24, 22 June 2007 (CDT)

syndicated stories[edit]

I think the LA Times syndicated their story, and I know UPI wrote a story based on the Times story. Do we want to try to collect printings of those? I've got a bit of a completist streak, so I'd likely try it, but I can't honestly say there's much interesting to say about them.

Yeh they did, from a google news search last week i found two non-LA Times articles (one from the florida times if memory serves). I don't think there's much interesting stuff to be had describing what was in the articles unless there is some selective editing of them, but maybe a list of publications which reprinted the article could be good.

Buzzflash[edit]

I'm not familiar with Buzzflash so don't know if this will get any real attention, but it's interesting -- we finally find out what PF Fox's story is. --jtltalk 12:54, 29 June 2007 (CDT)

Another blog picked it up - Conservapedia and The War Against Truth. Meanwhile, google news now shows up the buzzflash article when searching for conservapedia. Another fun bit to read - the blogs. --Shagie 22:36, 29 June 2007 (CDT)

Pam Troy has been writing on and off for several months now...CP user PF Fox. She's quite good. If you google her you'll find her other articles.--PalMD-yada yada 01:14, 30 June 2007 (CDT)

wtf[edit]

"July 1, 2007"

What is this, the fucking future?! Sheesh... humanbe in 20:20, 30 June 2007 (CDT)

The magic of publication dates and/or timezones. --jtltalk 23:08, 30 June 2007 (CDT)
Yah, you call it magic, I call it Satanism! Freakin' time zone wierdoes! humanbe in 03:39, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

Gay blog and Conservapedia[edit]

Occasionally I like to toss 'conservapedia' into Google news to see what blog is ridiculing Conservapedia now...

http://www.queerty.com/news/conservapedia-knows-the-gays-20070711/

It even comes with an absolute gem critiquing the grammar.

Homosexuality is an immoral sexual lifestyle between members of the same sex. It is more than simply a sexual act, it is going beyond the boundaries that God has setup for marriage; one man and one woman.
They’re so afraid of sodomy, they can’t even use a colon, except when it comes to allegedly anti-gay biblical references, which they list directly after their definition.

They've got a good graphic too. --Shagie 13:37, 17 July 2007 (CDT)

Wonkette[edit]

Should the Wonkette story be included in this page? KlapauciusEsteemed Constructor 15:30, 29 January 2009 (EST)

I forget if this is supposed to be limited to print & TV type media or not, but well-known bloggers would seem, these days, to be the equivalent. So, yes? ħumanUser talk:Human 15:44, 29 January 2009 (EST)

Der Spiegel[edit]

German magazine Der Spiegel wrote also an article about CP. Here is it in English: [3] --217.85.162.197 (talk) 18:08, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
