Hilariously, Myers does it again and invades an Expelled event only to get expelled again. This time it was a conference call.
There was some mad rustling and flustering about on the other side of the phone some complaints, etc., and then one of them asked me to do the honorable thing and hang up…so I said yes, I would do the honorable thing and hang up while they continued the dishonorable thing and continued to lie.
No doubt Nisbet will have an attack of the vapors any moment now.
Update: Predictably the DI-hack spin has begun already. Denyse O’Leary claims “Myers apparently somehow got into the press conference itself! – ‘under false pretences’ [sic] according to the moderator”. Problem is, PZ – like all members of the Panda’s Thumb received an invitation from the movies PR firm. Now it could perhaps be argued that PZ should have stayed quiet and not interrupted the show but you’ve got to question why Mathis and co hadn’t muted the phone lines. Apparently the “conference call” was supposed to be an echo chamber in which journalists got to listen to Stein and co field pre-screened questions. In other words, difficult questions were “expelled.” Oh, the irony.
Update (3/29): Skepchick has a transcript of the call.
