How pissed is Joe Romm at Grist? Plenty. Their decision to act more like a journalistic outlet than a one-note activist clearinghouse (in this instance) now makes it harder for him to make statements like this (in bold, of course):
I can't imagine why any serious journalist would cite the work of The Breakthrough Institute (TBI) "” except to debunk it.
I'm willing to wager that Romm also put in a few angry, hectoring emails and calls to Grist over this. I hope they told him to stuff it.
