Radio talk show host Art Bell has received the Skeptic's
nastiest slight, the "Snuffed Candle" award. Bell, they
say, has encouraged credulity, presented pseudo-science as
genuine, and contributed to the public's lack of
understanding of the methods of scientific inquiry.
Twisting the knife, they go on to insinuate that he may be
partially responsible for the Heaven's Gate suicides last
year. But are the Skeptics really being fair?
