Musings on the intersection of Articles, Bias, and Censorship

(The Big 3: A.B.C.)

Randy Hinton issued a challenge on Peter A. Lipson’s article comments, for a “Live Debate in front of 10,000 people,” a week ago

Boris Ogon, 6 days ago commented:

“You are right now having a live “debate” in front of more than 10,000 people, … “

Considering that the article now reflects 3,601 views

NOT SO MUCH

Waiting for the 10,000

Randy Hinton reissued his standing challenge 10 hours ago

“I already offered you a forum on a science blog to debate with a real respected surgical oncologist, with a guarantee that he never moderates the “debate”.”

“I’m calling you out on your anecdotal stories and your support of Burzynski’s *treatment*. So prove me wrong by coming to this blog:”

This is Dr. David H. Gorski’s blog

Dr. Gorski censored (blocked) my comments

We are supposed to believe that he’s now NOT going to block someone’s comments???

Your comment is awaiting moderation.
Seriously ? Gorski ? Let’s remember that it is YOU who would NOT answer my questions, and instead inacted your “Hold the Mayo” posture re post 73
Let’s review your
“deconstructed his “evidence” in depth before”
claim

“Quoth Joe Mercola:
I love me some Burzynski antineoplastons
Posted by Orac on January 21, 2013″
” … In particular, a multicenter phase II trial carried out by investigators at the Mayo Clinic was a big failure, with a median survival of 5.2 months in patients with anaplastic oligoastrocytoma, anaplastic astrocytoma, or glioblastoma multiforme that had recurred after radiation therapy
Burzynski naturally has lots of excuses for why the trial failed and tried to blame the investigators, but his complaints are not convincing”

I challenged Orac about this and this reply was posted which included my point at the beginning of the reply:

“An excellent explanation of how dubious Stanislaw Burzynski’s activities are”

“CONCLUSION: Although we could not confirm any tumor regression in patients in this study, THE SMALL SAMPLE SIZE PRECLUDES DEFINITIVE CONCLUSIONS ABOUT TREATMENT EFFICACY.”
“You do realize that that means that the Mayo trial failed to find evidence of efficacy, just as I said, don’t you?
The default of a finding like that is that there is no evidence of efficacy, not that failure to have adequate numbers to show an effect means that there’s an effect there
If SRB wants to convince skeptics that his treatments work better than conventional therapy, let him publish the evidence in a peer-reviewed journal in a manner that it can be independently verified
Thus far, he has failed to do so”
I responded to Orac, quoting his reply at the beginning of my reply:

Orac, I thoroughly enjoyed; with a dismissive limp wrist, you posted:
