Sorry I've been keeping a low profile here but I've been busy. And really, I don't much care for speculative stuff so MB can sometimes be hard for me, though this one is much better than most. In any event, I put together in one place something that hopes to straighten out what we know from what we don't know about the Cushing thing. I am going to use it as a link in the future to refer people to who get things a little wrong, and I hope that you feel free to do so as well. I think that there's just a ton of misinformation out there due to the nature of how things happened. Friday night release of info, short Cushing statement, the AP went nuts without hearing any facts, limited release of anonymous sourced info and plenty of gossip, a press conference that asked mostly the wrong questions and then a small amount of information released by Cushing's attorney. So I tried to straight everything out the best I could given what we know and don't know, and I hope this helps: Brian Cushing, confirmation bias and caring about real facts If you have any additional facts, questions or corrections, please let me know and I will update the post. Thanks!
