On editorial balance and "I'm entitled to my opinion": 
"['I'm entitled to my opinion'] becomes shorthand for 'I can say or think whatever I like' – and by extension, continuing to argue is somehow disrespectful. And this attitude feeds, I suggest, into the false equivalence between experts and non-experts that is an increasingly pernicious feature of our public discourse."
