The story thus far:
Abha Bhattarai of the WashingtonPost wrote an article on me. Read it and my deconstruction thereof here: Come See the Sausage Being Made .
Abha then asked for more comment. Being new to Twitter, I just learned about its polling feature. I put up the links so the public could read Abha’s piece and my deconstruction, then ran a binding poll, asking the public should I talk to the public through Abha, based on reading her work and my response. 69% of a good-sized (n=301) poll of the public voted that I should skip “Washington Post agitprop” and instead find an “honest and deserving journalist” with whom to work.
On Abha’s Twitter feed I publicly asked her if she would care to comment. Her response? Abha Battarai of the Washington Post ( where “Democracy Dies in Darkness” ) is now hiding this information from her followers on Twitter. How odd.
