There has been much publicity about Michael Mann’s claims to have been awarded a share of the Nobel Peace Prize. Somewhat overlooked in the excitement about “Nobel” Mann were the accomplishments of “Olympic Mann” at multiple Olympics, celebrated in Josh’s cartoon at left showing “Olympic Mann” in an iconic pose.
In Mann’s lawsuit against National Review, Mann accused them of defamation of a “Nobel peace recipient”. National Review recently honored Mann’s “award” of a Nobel Peace Prize with a full page ad in the Penn State student newspaper (h/t WUWT here.)
With no sacrifice in accuracy, Mann could additionally have accused National Review of defaming an “Olympic gold medalist.”
