This kind of "factual" reporting carries the undertone of a highly-opinionated writer. Solely from reading this article once, I have caught more extreme accusations with no citation or support whatsoever and, undoubtedly, goes unquestioned by the reader. The sad part about all of this is the misconception the public perceives about Mr. Pinker, and by the time Mr. Pinker clears his name through whatever means necessary, the public will have moved on and forgotten of his ordeal--his name still stained despite his efforts.

Reporting of this sort should not simply run under the censors as "okay." Employers need to start facing consequences for letting this kind of slander go unnoticed.

Formal charge: Intentional Public Deception.
