Fact and fiction

Neil deGrasse Tyson notes that it's not 'fair' for media sources to give equal time to scientific fact and ideological fiction. They are not equivalent views that deserve the same treatment. It's a distortion of the equal time principle, which might apply if both sides used the same facts. But climate change deniers are not using scientific fact in their diatribes. (I can't in good conscience call them arguments.)
