Agreed; I was glossing over this point and reacting to the tangential
issue of pot calling kettle black.  I think this applies as well to
publications like "perrspectives".  I would like to see all such venues
publish completely open lists of pointers to conflicting/contrasting
viewpoints, as a matter of responsible advocacy.  In fact, I think
Google is a great boon to people who want to hear "the other side" of
any story, and annotation services could also be very useful.

OK, I see that point now.  This is the whole "Google as
amplifier/echo-chamber" syndrome.  I once again note that Eric Bina has
virtually been erased from the history of web browsers.
