OY!!! Those "debunkers" sure are a clever lot, huh?

The esteemed New York Times, no less......

Instead of going out of its way to edify the public with a
guffaw-inducing image of the Face on Mars with cartoon rabbit
ears, why didn't the Times' illustrious staff do any
investigative reporting?

If they had, they'd learn that the lander-debris idea is porous,
that the so-called "bunny" has evidently moved, that the
Opportunity rover had a perfect chance to take a closer look but
was steered onward to save "precious machine time," and that no
one - not even the biggest nuts out there (and there are a ton
of them) - think the "bunny" is actually a rabbit (I personally
labeled it the "pronged object", in an unsuccessful attempt to
avoid "hit-pieces" like this one).

The Times is brandishing the "bunny" label literally. What about
"Sushi," the rock lovingly (and quite incomprehensibly) named by
JPL's own? Will the Times run a condescending article chastising
NASA geologists for suggesting the presence of raw fish in a
Martian crater?
