Cranky critics of PainScience.com often say I’m “close minded” because I don’t present “all views.” As if I’m ethically obliged to defend theirs! (That’s a tired, simplistic application of the notion of journalistic balance. Like I’m a news anchor or something.)
Accusing anyone who disagrees with you of being close-minded: now that is a closed mind!
My job is to write about science-based self-help for common pain problems. That’s the perspective I have devoted myself to studying and articulating. If readers want a different point of view…hey, the rest of the internet is full of it.
