What is truly remarkable in this story is the fact that Bruce Waltke accurately predicted the misleading spin that ABC News would put in its report. His prediction appeared in the most comprehensive statement he made about the situation. His statement was the most important document that ABC News should have considered in its report. It was widely disseminated on the web four days before the ABC News story aired. Moreover, Waltke’s statement is consistent with the statement made by RTS, and has been corroborated by other sources.
I have seen bad research, agenda-driven reporting and media bias in the past, but never have I seen this kind of embarrassment.
