"One false story does not negate the argument but the argument is based around evidence, and the evidence in this case was clearly false. You can't build an argument on fake evidence... I hope we can at least agree on that."

"In what way do you mean reasonable or level headedness?  I could interpret it as being able to remain calm in high-stress situations.  Alternatively I could intrpret it to mean able to see other's viewpoints."
