The Bad Hack blog; and more on Intelligent Design (oxymoron?)

  • Ah, what a great idea – the Bad Hack blog. The PR industry gets its chance to bite back by mentioning the awful hacks they’ve endured. (British too. Excellent.) And hey, why shouldn’t it?
    Then again, they might need to raise their game ever so slightly. I know that one of them refers to Chris Youett, and was already legendary when I started in the game 20 years ago.

    Q. I’ve heard that there isn’t really a scientific controversy, that 99+% of biologists take evolution as a given in their work. Is that true?
    A. No, there really is a raging controversy, but most biologists don’t know it because they only read “accepted”, “peer-reviewed”, or “good” scientific journals. And while it may be true that “most” biologists accept evolution, we do have several on our side, along with lots of scientists from other fields of study like engineering and computer science, and thousands of ministers, politicians, and creationist homeschool teachers.

    And if you replace “evolution” with “climate change” and “creationist” with “oil-dependent” then you get much the same effect..

    Hey, perhaps they’re *all* Chris Youett. That would be something..

  3. I know lots better stories than those, and I don’t get out much either. Plus I think I ID-ed Mr Badhack instantly, so I wouldn’t advise giving him the MI6 account. (-:

  4. Are you sure John? We’ve never met…or spoken.

    John doesn’t have to meet people to ID them :-)

  6. Dear Bro Arthur,

    One of the first things I learned when I was a junior hack on the Coventry Journal was to check my facts before openning my big gob.

    A simple telephone call would have confirmed whether it was me you were talking about. Perhaps those on the posh papers think they they don’t have to do that. this isn’t the first time that you have taken my name in vain without exercising even the most basic of professional courtesies.

    Yours fraternally,

    Bro Chris Youett

    Which one are you claiming is you, then, Chris?

    Perhaps those on the posh papers think they they donít have to do that. this isnít the first time that you have taken my name in vain without exercising even the most basic of professional courtesies.

    Truly perplexed by that one. “This isn’t the first time”? Have our paths ever crossed? I think I’d remember it.
