Submission + - Anthony Watt's responds to Economist ( 1

cluge writes: Anthony Watts, author of the Watt's Up With That blog has posted an open reply by Willis Eschenbach in response to the Economist. You may recall that the Economist recently had an blog post titled "Scepticism's limits" covered by Slashdot. That post was extremely critical of Mr. Eschenbach and Eschenbach fires back finding errors in logic and fact that undercuts the Economist's arguments. The entire affair is yet another reminder of the power of the Internet and the diminishing bully pulpit of traditional media outlets. 20 years ago Eschenbach would have had a hard time getting a reply out there.
