Have you considered formally publishing this critique?
Yes, I plan on writing up a formal reply (based on this series of blog posts), followed by my proposed “fake news futures market”!!!
I look forward to it. Is there a possibility for a zoom debate or another form of recorded debate?
A Zoom debate is a great idea!
