The media narrative goes on, and the scientists, when they protest, direct their protests not so much at the media as at the skeptics and mavericks, such as Tour himself.

Matthew Herron tweets, “Tell me more about this unacknowledged mystery!” and offers cases where scientists seemingly admitted the mystery of OOL.
