I wasn't claiming right or wrong from the outset. I said the caption was misleading and added weight to the suggestions of bias, he agreed and changed it stating that it had been an oversight. Now he decides to throw his toys out his pram and change it back, yet I am the one in the wrong?
When I read the conversation, I see nothing from you saying along the lines of "Thanks for making the change." I would have done the same as Rishi. He's tried to accommodate you and work with you on making it better and you're having a go at him for doing so? (i.e. you attempt to use the fact that he made a change to be evidence that it was wrong in the first place.)
Dilbert, I'm not surprised you take Rishi's side in this, you have both shown an extreme aversion to corrections or contradictory facts. You often paint yourself into a corner even when shown undeniable factual contradictions to your position, but then we have all considered you entertainment for a long time
Like I said, nobody wants to be wrong (or admit to it) - and that includes you
You are holding us to the same standards, that is wrong for a start.
Rishi is supposed to be an unbiased journalist imparting fair and balanced information and as such is held to a standard, I am a nobody off the internet with a fake ID. I work for myself and only answer to my personal clients, he is employed as a journalist and is given amazing access to all kinds of stuff and given a wide reaching and broad audience who are supposed to be able to trust to his fairness. See the difference?
Did Rishi thank me for pointing out his oversight? No.
Why should I thank him because he made a correction to a portion of his work that made him look bad?
He isn't accommodating me, I just pointed out he was misleading his readers. A situation he has decided to revert to. Yet you think I should thank him?
I didn't say he was wrong in the first place, I said the caption was misleading. He agreed. Now he doesn't. If he has taken both positions he must have been wrong about one of them.
Of course I don't like to be wrong, I hate the thought of giving people bad or incorrect information. But if you look through my posting history on the rare occasion I offer a factual position and it turns out to be wrong I am quick to acknowledge it. I used to have a set of links illustrating that willingness to apologize and correct my mistakes but it, and half the posts, seems to have been lost.
