If you want to come across as honest, and present facts as honestly as you can, avoid partisan sources.
I read this post after the one I just responded to. I agree with what you're saying here. I have to wonder why you didn't make these points when BRC created this thread instead of waiting until now. Of course, I understand that it's because you're swimming in the art of shilling these days so I don't really wonder all that much.
