Newsmax's Creative Reinterpretation
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax engages in a bit of creative reinterpretation in an Aug. 10 article touting a Ben Stein column at the American Spectator claiming he was fired as a New York Times in part because of his 2008 movie "Expelled -- No Intelligence Allowed."

Newsmax rather bizarrely described the movie as "calling for a dialogue between science and faith." Er, not so much: When you're arguing that evolution paved the way for the Holocaust and obtaining interviews from evolutionists under false pretenses, that's not exactly calling for a dialogue.

In his Spectator column, Stein didn't deviate from reality quite so grandly as Newsmax, claiming instead his film was "a plea for open discussion of the possibility that life might have started with an Intelligent Designer." But again, invoking Nazis and engaging in deception does not exactly facilitate open discussion.
