James Delingpole’s blogging

Yesterday evening I may have given the impression to some people on Twitter that James Delingpole’s blogging for the Telegraph was shit and repeatedly wrong.

Now, the first part of that is obviously true. More intelligent ppl than me have pointed out to me that the second accusation may get me into trouble. So, before my ass gets sued, a clarification. Delingpole writes comment and doesn’t know much climate science at all. He admitted he interpreted interpretations by other people. But I can’t find any instance of him apologising for lying about anything, so if people wrongly got the impression I had accused him of worse, I withdraw the accusation. As he mostly opines on various issues, technically he cannot get factual stuff wrong. I don’t want to accuse him of stuff he didn’t do.

He is however still a nasty person. Last year he published the name and details of an innocent member of the public who had contacted their MP with questions about the environment. After Delingpole’s readers started harassing this individual, the Telegraph took the post down. Neither the website nor Delingpole issued an apology for that as far as I know.

    He talks shit that’s wrong in the Express, and that’s an undeniable fact – the Express even say so at the end of his article: http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/259896/Who-would-spend-so-much-on-a-loaf-The-NHS-of-course

    Why don’t you opine that he’s a liar?

    His amazing response to attacks on gypsies gave him away a long time ago. Most of us don’t need to be told the ethnic origin of children before we decide whether attacking them is wrong.

    Ah, Delingpole. Poster boy for the Dunning Kruger effect, where arrogance and ignorance feed off each other so completely that a vortex of bullshit flings far everything else save malice and spite.

    (Does a vortex do that? I dunno.)

    I’d like to say is is one of a kind, but that would be wishful thinking. But at least, of his kind, he is egregious in the modern sense.
