But even then you’re still kinda fucked because popular journals are not without their own political slant. It also MUST be peer reviewed, according to them, as if peer review were infallible. What would David Irving’s peers have to say about him?

There's editorial bias, sure. But the fringe has become so anti-science that just using uncontroversial sources is more than adequate.

Also, I try to be open to the possibility of being wrong myself so if a study comes to a different conclusion than I hold, I'll defer to the boffins in lab coats until proven otherwise.
