He said what he said and he was wrong.
You saying he was wrong doesn't make it so.
When we started this discussion I was explicit:
You said "If he says idiotic and factually incorrect things (which he has), he should be politely corrected."
What's he said that was not factual or was incorrect?
Not a difference of opinion, not an ideological difference, but something that was not factual or was incorrect?
You offered a quote about someone interpreting something Hogg said, who inserted words, and the words that were used weren't even quotes from Hogg.
I may have missed actual transcripts/audio/video. If so, you want me to concede? Then full quotes from Hogg, in context, with the facts that are contrary in evidence. Not someone's interpretation. Not some poor word choice from a 17 year old that you feel better promoting as some "pundit" so you can attack him with a clear conscious.
But yes, anytime anyone is factually correct, they should be corrected, politely. Saying something idiotic? We should shut down radio, TV, the internet, publishing houses, and most certainly the Drudge Retort for that!
