Michael Mann actually believes his own propaganda! Paragraph 5 of Mann’s official complaint against National Review says his critics are guilty of ‘personal defamation of a Nobel prize recipient’
Mark Steyn mocks Mann: 'Accepting for the purposes of argument that there is such a crime in U.S. law as 'defamation of a Nobel prize recipient', don't you have to be a Nobel prize recipient to be the victim of it?' -- 'I've fended off various legal challenges around the world, but this is a first for me: A man who has declared himself a Nobel laureate is suing NR for refusing to respect him as one'
Excerpt from Mann’s lawsuit:
“It is one thing to engage in discussion about debatable topics. It is quite another to attempt to discredit consistently validated scientific research through the professional and personal defamation of a Nobel prize recipient.”
