As Twitchy reported, The Federalist’s Sean Davis has been fact-checking some quotes by Neil deGrasse Tyson, including Tyson’s claim that George W. Bush in the days after 9/11 said that “Our God is the God who named the stars,” which Tyson explains was Bush’s way of segregating radical Islam from religions like Christianity or Judaism.
The problem, Davis reports, is that Bush uttered a similar but not identical phrase, and after the loss of Space Shuttle Columbia, not 9/11. Hot Air and others noted that Wikipedia editors seemed to refuse to allow any information about Tyson’s serial fabrications into the article about him.
Thursday, Davis noted that Wikipedia editors were hard at work on the “List of Wikipedia controversies” page.
Editor’s note: The original version of this post stated that former President George W. Bush spoke after space shuttle Challenger was lost. Bush in fact spoke after shuttle Columbia was lost during re-entry. Twitchy apologizes for the error.
