Liberals love science. Except when they come face-to-face with science that lacks a political agenda. That occurred this week when Judge Anita Brody handed down her ruling in the NFL’s concussion settlement that only deceased NFL players whose brains show evidence of CTE will automatically qualify for benefits from the fund. Not living retired players.
It was a victory for science over the supposedly science-loving media because it is a scientific fact, and for the media, an inconvenient truth, that CTE cannot currently be detected in a living person. In other words, you have to be dead in order to prove that you actually had CTE.
