Steven Corneliussen clarified his intent and position in an email to me and Josephson

"It’s important to emphasize one thing that Professor Sarfatti wrote in one of his messages: “Corneliussen did not at all make clear what side he was on.” That’s right, and the reason is that I have no side. I’m a media analyst and a writer and reporter, not a physicist. The article’s purpose was to report on media coverage, not physics merits."

Brian as the "plaintiff" in the case, as it were, seems content with that. He is happy that cold fusion is being aired anew in the major science media.
Jack Sarfatti
American Institute of Physics's trade magazine Physics Today commits libel on Nobel Laureate Brian Josephson.

  • Jack Sarfatti The Physics Today blogger gives serious play to GrrlScientist in a vicious mud-slinging defaming general attack on parapsychology focused on Nobel Laureate physicist Brian Josephson a Fellow of the Royal Society, Professor at Cambridge, a guest of the Queen of England etc. These people have no integrity, no intellectual honesty and no shame it appears and they are in what should be fair responsible organizations.

    1) parapsychology is not based on "powerful brain waves"

    2) it is not "faith-based" it adheres to scientific method and this is a libel on several academics in mainstream universities

    As you told Grrl Scientist it is libel to repeat libel. The remarks below are false and designed to humiliate you.
    One more article requires inclusion in this list, but it has a different tenor. At the Guardian, the pseudonymous blogger GrrlScientist is described as a molecular evolutionary biologist and ornithologist. She recently criticized Josephson for "openly espousing parapsychology—a field of quantum kookiness that encompasses a wide array of anti-scientific and pseudoscientific hocus-pocus attributed to powerful brain waves" and for having become "an outspoken supporter of cold fusion, that faith-based idea that is often referred to as 'pathological science' by his scientific colleagues." He has, she charges, "abandoned rationality and the scientific method to advocate boneheaded fantasies."


    Steven T. Corneliussen, a media analyst for the American Institute of Physics, monitors three national newspapers, the weeklies Nature and Science, and occasionally other publications. He has published op-eds in the Washington Post and other newspapers, has written for NASA's history program, and is a science writer at a particle-accelerator laboratory.


    Note what US Law says:
    18 U.S.C. § 875(c) criminalizes the making of threats via Internet.

    Cyberbullying is defined in legal glossaries as

    actions that use information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group, that is intended to harm another or others.
    use of communication technologies for the intention of harming another person
    use of internet service and mobile technologies such as web pages and discussion groups as well as instant messaging or SMS text messaging with the intention of harming another person.
    Examples of what constitutes cyberbullying include communications that seek to intimidate, control, manipulate, put down, falsely discredit, or humiliate the recipient. The actions are deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior intended to harm another. Cyberbullying has been defined by The National Crime Prevention Council: “when the Internet, cell phones or other devices are used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person.[2][3]

    Stalking online has criminal consequences just as physical stalking. A target's understanding of why cyberstalking is happening is helpful to remedy and take protective action to restore remedy. Cyberstalking is an extension of physical stalking.[23] Among factors that motivate stalkers are: envy, pathological obsession (professional or sexual), unemployment or failure with own job or life; intention to intimidate and cause others to feel inferior; the stalker is delusional and believes he/she "knows" the target; the stalker wants to instill fear in a person to justify his/her status; belief they can get away with it (anonymity).[24][25]

    A majority of states have laws that explicitly include electronic forms of communication within stalking or harassment laws.[11][12]
    Most law enforcement agencies have cyber-crime units and often Internet stalking is treated with more seriousness than reports of physical stalking.[13] Help and resources can be searched by State or area.

  • Jack Sarfatti There is in addition to the above that deals mainly with single stalkers using emails, social networks and anonymous remailers a new crime and emerging law known as "Organized Stalking" which applies in the above Josephson case.
